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.
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.
Are you a regional artist who loves sharing the joy of art with others? The MMFA offers studio classes for a variety of learners, from new artists as young as three years old, up to adults seasoned in creative experiences. If you have a passion for art education and are interested in teaching at the MMFA, please send us your resume and a brief introduction.
The docent program prepares active volunteers to lead tours and other public offerings at the Museum, with occasional opportunities to also give classroom and other off-site presentations. Docents regularly lead tours for a variety of ages, from young students to adults, guiding groups through the galleries, studios, and ArtWorks. Public programs include activities for whole families and offerings that engage the community.
