44th Montgomery Art Guild Museum Exhibition

May 22 through August 1, 2021

On view in the Atrium, Blackmon, Goldman, Richard, and Weil Galleries


Since 1960, the Museum has partnered with the Montgomery Art Guild to present a biennial exhibition of contemporary regional art in its galleries. The biennial exhibition contains an exciting variety of media, subjects, and themes by some of the most talented contemporary artists of the River Region and beyond.

This year’s juror, Dr. Wendy Castenell, Assistant Professor of African American Art in the Department of Art and Art History at The University of Alabama, thoughtfully selected 74 paintings, photographs, sculpture, textiles, and works on paper from 443 entries. Her choices reflect the breadth and depth of the creativity of artists currently working in the region.

Organized by the Montgomery Art Guild and the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts.


Support for this exhibition was provided by sponsors AlaCOMP, Elizabeth Crump, and Laura and Barrie Harmon, with additional support from co-sponsors Dan Harris, Montgomery County Commission; Ann Hubbert; Lucy and Hans Luquire; Renasant Bank; and Paula and Nelson Smith.

“I was especially impressed with the ways that many of these artists responded to issues that have been affecting the country over the past year, particularly related to the COVID-19 pandemic and the racial tensions gripping the country…Ultimately, this underscores the power that art possesses in expressing larger social issues.”


– Dr. Wendy Castenell, Juror
