About Unveil South Main Artwalk & Exhibition

20 artists have been selected from across the regional to exhibit in 20 spaces in the South Main District for 20 days as a part of the Unveil South Main Artwalk & Exhibition. This artwalk, taking place November 30 – December 19, brings together local artists with local businesses to celebrate South Main's creative economy.  With established galleries, Memphis College of Art’s Graduate School, and ArtSpace coming soon, this quirky, creative arts community provides the perfect canvas for this event.

The selected artists were chosen from nearly 100 submissions by a Selection Committee comprised of artists and curators.  Artists were then assigned a makeshift gallery space in a retail or restaurant space in South Main.  Artists will exhibit 8 – 10 pieces and are allowed to keep 100% of proceeds from sales.  Artists are donating one auction piece that will benefit the South Main Association, the organization that hosts the monthly South Main Trolley Night event.

Everyone is invited to attend a Unveil South Main Launch Party on Friday, November 30 at Jack Robinson Gallery from 5 -7 pm.  Auction items will be on display at this event.  Following the party, artists will proceed to their individual galleries for opening receptions from 7 -9 pm.  From November 31 – December 19, auction items will be on display at The Blues Foundation, 421 S Main Street, and available for online bidding and viewing on this site.

A panel of judges will view installed exhibits on November 30 starting at 12 noon to determine cash prizes.

Best in Show: $1000 

First Place: $750  

Second Place: $500
