43rd Montgomery Art Guild Museum Exhibition
On view at the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts June 1 through July 21, 2019

 

The Museum has partnered with the Montgomery Art Guild to present a biennial exhibition of contemporary regional art in its galleries since 1960. We are pleased to welcome the art and artists of the 43rd exhibition to the Museum this summer. The exhibition contains an exciting variety of media, subjects, and themes, representing the “best of the best” artists within our River Region. The featured artist for this 43rd exhibition will be Rick Mills, long-time professor of art at Auburn University at Montgomery.

Juror David Reyes, Curator of Exhibitions and Collections at the Huntsville Museum of Art, will select between 80 and 100 works from approximately 400 entries by about 100 artists. Reyes has been at the Museum since 1994, working on over 300 major exhibitions at the Museum, including the prestigious Red Clay Survey, a recurring juried exhibition of contemporary art with more than 1,200 applicants from the Southeast region. Reyes has juried numerous regional independent art competitions, most recently the 2013 Dogwood Festival in Knoxville, Tennessee.

All entries must be submitted by Saturday, March 30. Cash prizes are awarded for works judged exceptional by the juror, including the following awards:

  • The MMFA Director's Award, $2500, made possible by Margaret Berry Lowder, MMFA President, 2002–2004
  • Foy Gilmore Goodwyn Memorial Fund, $1000, donated by the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts
