MAM's exhibition program is a broad landscape that serves and represents diverse audiences and creative interests. Each year, 20 to 25 solo and group exhibitions rotate through six state-of-the-art galleries. MAM organizes and rents exhibits, develops programs through community partnerships, and welcomes the opportunity to review exhibition proposals.

For exhibition proposal guidelines, go to Art Submissions page.

MAM does not accept commissions on the sale of artwork but in support of artists, will put collectors in touch with artists or artists' representatives.

Jerry Rankin: From the Inside Out
Jerry Rankin: From the Inside Out
From the Inside Out is an exhibition of seven charcoal drawings collected from his 2002 exhibition at MAM titled New Works. A counterpoint to the vibrant color and trembling energy of Rankin's more well-known paintings and prints, these drawings are contemplative and understated. The images are meditations on the land, specifically contemplating the physical borders both natural and human-made.

Sheila Miles: Light and Shadow
Sheila Miles: Light and Shadow
MAM is thrilled to welcome Miles back to Missoula with a one-woman exhibition of new paintings. Over her 20-plus years in Montana, she earned a reputation as a talented and prolific painter with her introspective, symbol-laden imagery. Light and Shadow represents a break from the previous content-driven narratives, focusing instead on painting for painting's sake.
