The Memphis/Germantown Art League (MGAL) of Memphis, TN, is a nonprofit organization of visual artists and associates supporting the work of its member artists. The League’s purpose is to aid its member artists in their professional growth and in the development of their artistic skills by providing exhibitions, workshops, demonstrations, and other continuing education opportunities.
Organized on August 16, 1976, as the Germantown Art League, the group was chartered on June 22, 1977, as a nonprofit Tennessee corporation. In May 1988, the organization’s name was changed to Memphis/Germantown Art League in recognition of the wider geographical distribution of its members. Today MGAL’s membership encompasses the mid-south area including nearby communities in Mississippi, Arkansas and western Tennessee. The League depends on all its members as volunteers to serve on its Board of Directors and committees and to assist in the work of the organization.
Our meetings are normally held quarterly in Memphis. From the website, please click on Calendar for the location of any upcoming meetings.
MGAL is grateful for the many individuals and organizations that have supported our efforts in the past. We need the continued support of members and friends of our organization in order to fulfill our mission of promoting and encouraging the work of visual artists in this area.
