The Memphis Botanic Garden welcomes proposals for high quality art exhibitions to be displayed on our gallery walls. Please keep in mind the mission of the Memphis Botanic Garden when submitting. “Memphis Botanic Garden strives to enhance lives by connecting people with plants, increasing awareness and appreciation of our environment.”
The Memphis Botanic Garden welcomes proposals for high quality art exhibitions to be displayed in our Visitors Center. There are two halls: our West Gallery Hall and our East Gallery Hall. The space can exhibit a solo artist, two artists, or a group self-curated show. Artists must use the cables that hang from a recessed track. It's very minimal and makes installation incredibly easy. Exhibitions require a minimum of 20 pieces of art, and all pieces must be available for purchase.
If you would like to be considered for a show, please send the following to firstname.lastname@example.org:
- 3 digital images - .jpg no larger than 1000 pixels on the widest side with a list of titles, mediums, and prices.
- A resume and website link including an artist's statement.
The Gallery Manager will contact you to discuss possible dates and procedures for your exhibition. Most of our shows stay up for 30 days. All works must stay up until the final day of the exhibition. Artists are responsible for installation and removal of all art.
There may be a time when an event overlaps a gallery show, and the other party is paying to use some of the wall space in the Gallery during their event. These events typically last no more than 3 days. When this happens, the gallery manager makes a map of your layout, removes the pieces, stores them in a safe place and rehangs them promptly after the event. You will be notified if this is the case during your exhibit period.
Please send all inquiries to email@example.com.
