The Members Show 2021

March 12 -

April 25

Exhibition overview

The Members Show has been an annual tradition since the museum’s founding in 1954. Each year, we look forward to sharing artwork by longtime patrons, discovering the creativity of new members, and celebrating the artists and individuals that are the spirit of our museum community. On the opening weekend of last year’s Members Show, we shuttered the museum amidst the uncertainty of a new reality shaped by a global pandemic. Later that summer, Hurricane Sally brought additional hardship to our region. This year, we are more grateful than ever for the support, talent, and vision of the artists on display here. The range of artwork in this year’s exhibition reflects the diversity of our region and demonstrates the power of creative expression in times of change.

 

Museum memberships help sustain our exhibitions, public programming, and comprehensive educational offerings. Thanks to community support, many of our programs are free and open to the public.
