The Southern is a contemporary art gallery dealing in recent works by artists connected to the American South. The connection ranges from the geographic region the artist was born or is currently residing (Southeast to Southwest), relatable content, and/or through the materials sourced.

We are not accepting submissions for full-length exhibitions at this time. You may submit work for consideration for the below programs:
Works on Paper & Objects
The Works on Paper and Objects program is an ongoing exhibit area of the gallery featuring a curated group of artists. This program enables artists to work more freely with new ideas and provides a public setting for a series in progress. Works on Paper includes all media including painting, photography, collage, mixed media, and drawing. Objects range from three dimensional fiber work to hand-painted skateboards.
Between Two Palms
The Between Two Palms program is a three-day opportunity for visual artists within the region to show current works as a solo or group exhibition. All Between Two Palms exhibits must have a focus. Group exhibitions must enlist an independent curator or point-person to guide the artwork selection as well as communicate with The Southern. The rental rate for the three-day period is $1,500. The gallery does not keep a commission from sales.
Upcoming Between Two Palms dates
July 15 – 17
September 9 – 10
November 11 – 13
