The Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts is an organization with roots that run deep in River Region’s art scene. Originally founded by local artists, we strive to keep those bonds strong through programming, exhibiting, and teaching opportunities.
ArtTalk offers artists constructive feedback from and camaraderie with peers from across the community. Through its current virtual incarnation, these monthly meetings full of artful discussions can be enjoyed without boundaries of location!
Biennial Arts Show
The Museum co-hosts a juried biennial exhibition of contemporary art with the membership of the Montgomery Art Guild (MAG), an organization of local artists in the River Region. MAG membership is open to all working artists with the payment of an annual membership fee.
Artists interested in introducing their work to a MMFA curator should submit the following materials for review:
- Artist Statement
- 10–20 digital images or address of your personal website
- Image list, including media, dimensions, and date of works
- Articles and other support material (optional)
The Museum cannot accept actual works of art. Should we need any additional information, a curator will contact you.
Local Artists Live
Twice a month, Local Artists Live gives us a behind-the-scenes look into the creative processes and spaces of Montgomery artists. Tune in to the MMFA’s Instagram at 10 AM on select Saturdays each month to enjoy these live broadcasts presented by the artists themselves.
The Museum’s store features artists from across the River Region and state. With a goal of reflecting our community’s beautifully diverse art scene, we welcome artists of all practices, backgrounds, mediums, and styles to apply. Artists and works of art featured will be changed out recurrently, so applications will be accepted on a rotating basis.
