Calling all artists and art lovers! Take part in The MAC’s 22nd Annual Members Show. Submit works in all media, from painting and sculpture to video and performance; it can be something old, or new, or experimental.

Interested in showing your art and your support during our biggest membership drive of the year? It’s easy, become a member at $50 level or above ($30 for students) and bring a work of art during the specified drop-off dates.

This year, The MAC invites artists to respond to the theme Assembly. Each year, a theme for the exhibition is selected by The MAC staff and Board of Directors. Previous themes include Δ (Delta), Trans-, Meltdown, and Border.

The Annual Members Show is one of the cornerstones of the spirit and mission of The MAC. The exhibition celebrates emerging to established artistic talent in Dallas and surrounding areas. While fostering an inclusive worldview, The MAC continues to shape perceptions and attitudes towards contemporary art on a local level by acting as a societal meeting point between artists and art patrons. The Annual Members Show provides a meeting point, a place for creative expression and experimentation, and importantly, supports our future programming.
