As the spread of COVID-19 shuts down entertainment and gathering spaces, the Mobile Arts Council (MAC) has temporarily closed the gallery to the public and has launched the MAC Virtual Gallery as of Thursday, March 19, 2020.
Each month, our community gallery features new exhibitions of original works created by local and regional artists in our Gallery @ Room 1927, located at 6 South Joachim Street (next door to the Saenger Theatre). The gallery is open Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Any artists are eligible and may submit a proposal for consideration. Exhibitions are usually displayed from the first Monday of the month through the last Friday.
Now, those exhibitions can be viewed here online, in addition to unique arts and crafts created by MAC’s artist members that are available for purchase. The new MAC Virtual Gallery serves our mission by providing patrons the opportunity to support local artists of all mediums and skill levels from beyond the walls of the Gallery @ Room 1927. Be sure to visit monthly for new art pieces, tickets to MAC events, and so much more!
Your patronage of the arts grows Mobile’s collective cultural footprint in a number of ways. It allows MAC to continue hosting exhibitions and artist workshops, award grants to artists and arts organizations, and provide experiences that celebrate the historically heterogeneous culture that makes Mobile so vibrant!
The MAC Virtual Gallery is always open! Click here to view and purchase works from this month’s exhibiting artists in our new Online Store. Scroll below to view our past exhibitions or to read about what we have on display.
