Zeitgeist Gallery / 516 Hagan St. , #100 October 1, 2022 - October 29, 2022

Art of the South, an annual juried exhibition presented by Number: Inc., returns after a two year hiatus.

Number: Inc. has partnered with Nashville’s Zeitgeist Gallery to host the 7th Art of the South exhibition October 1 – October 29, 2022. Katie Delmez, curator at the Frist Art Museum, juried the exhibition which includes 82 artists and 86 artworks. Artists from Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Missouri, Mississippi, North Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, South Carolina, Virginia, and Washington, D.C. will be represented. Artworks range from two and three-dimensional works to sculpture, textile, and video.

An opening reception will be held on Saturday, October 1, 2022 from 12:00 – 6:00 pm. The exhibition will be on view at Zeitgeist Gallery through October 29, 2022. Admission is free and open to the public.


Number: INC was started in 1987 in Memphis, Tennessee with the goal of developing an arts journal that dealt with contemporary issues of Memphis artists. In the 35 years since its initial publication, Number is still run by a small group of dedicated volunteers that bring the vital voice of the arts to the public free of charge. Many are artists or art professionals working in other capacities to keep the arts alive in the region. What has changed since Number's first issue is the scope: once a publication with a visual arts focus has expanded to explore the nexus with performing, literary, and conceptual arts. Number continues to provide regional coverage of the arts throughout the South and celebrates the cultural contributions of the region with its annual Art of the South Exhibition.
