The Majestic Galleries is a 501c3 non-profit, artist-run cooperative that provides exhibition opportunities and connects individuals to contemporary art in Nelsonville, Ohio.  

Our mission is to encourage cultural enrichment and develop strong partnerships within our community. We offer a space where artists are encouraged to experiment and explore new ideas, pushing the limits of current art practices. We foster an inclusive environment that supports a forum for discussion among artists and their audience in southeastern Appalachian Ohio. We strongly believe in the power of education for our area's school children, achieved through offering exhibition and workshop opportunities to local youth, thus helping to foster knowledgeable and thoughtful future generations. 

We are always free and open to the public

Calling artists who recycle, repurpose and reuse to submit to the second annual upcycled art exhibition: “Reclaimed,” at Majestic Galleries in Nelsonville, OH. This exhibition contributes to the growing dialogue on sustainability and the importance of repurposing.  


Artists are encouraged to submit pieces that transform reclaimed materials into works of art. We are looking for artists who make eco-conscious art, question the environmental impact of their artistic process, and explore the theme of sustainability through their upcycled art. All 2D, 3D and 4D artwork is permitted. Open to artists 18 and over, nationally, who repurpose and reimagine recycled, reclaimed, and reused materials.  

Juror: Emily Beveridge
