2021 Initial Point Gallery Schedule

(click the link above to view the installation and reception schedule)

On the third floor of Meridian City Hall, directly across from the Mayor’s Office reception area, the Meridian Arts Commission maintains an elegant art display space called Initial Point Gallery.

The carpeted gallery, filled with natural light, features about 120 feet of wall space for the display of two-dimensional art, as well as several wood and acrylic display cases for the exhibition of three-dimensional works of art.

The Meridian Arts Commission schedules individual and group exhibits and artists’ receptions in the gallery throughout the year. In addition to the works of local and regional artists, the gallery has hosted works by nationally- and internationally-known artists, as well.

In 2011, Initial Point Gallery was chosen as one of only five venues nationwide to host the prestigious traveling show of the National Watercolor Society’s 90th Annual Exhibition.

Initial Point Gallery is free and open to the public any time during normal Meridian City Hall business hours – generally Monday through Friday, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, excluding major holidays.
