Annually, the Mobile Arts Council (MAC) presents the Members’ Show, featuring all of our artist members together. Side by side, MAC members represent the collective style and level of talent within the visual arts community of Mobile. Our members also represent the spectrum of mediums.

The 2020 Members’ Show will be at the Gallery in Room 1927 from Wednesday, August 5th to Thursday, August 27th. Tentative to COVID-19 precautions, there will be a special reception during LoDa ArtWalk on Friday, August 14th from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

The Members’ Show is open to new and current members. Memberships are available through our website, www.mobilearts.org.

To participate, complete this entry form by Monday, July 20th. There is no entry fee to participate, but a MAC Artist Membership is $35 for the year. You must drop off your pieces at 6 South Joachim Street on Monday, August 3rd, or Tuesday, August 4th, between 10 a.m.- 4 p.m.

Exhibitors may submit two pieces that fit within a three-foot by six-foot space. The art must be equipped to hang using wire, a sawtooth hanger, or some means to attach to a hook, unless suitable for a pedestal. Works must be labeled with the artist’s name, title of the piece, and medium.

Entries will remain exhibited until Thursday, August 27th. At the end of the show, pick up is on Friday, August 28th between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. MAC will add a ten percent sales tax and take a 20% commission on work that is sold. Checks will be mailed at the end of the month.

The Mobile Arts Council reserves the right to post images of your work to promote the exhibition, with credit given to the artist, unless otherwise requested.

For more information, alternate drop off arrangements, or questions regarding our hanging system, contact Amber Swain at aswain@mobilearts.org or 251-432-9796.
