VINEGAR champions artists. We facilitate the creation and experience of contemporary art, infusing it into communities to support, challenge, and enrich our collective consciousness.

VINEGAR is many things at once. We make, exhibit, and celebrate contemporary art at our two exhibition spaces and with satellite projects.

VINEGAR is an artist-run, women-led nonprofit organization.


VINEGAR values:

  • Supporting artists and their projects

  • Emphasizing experiences over commodities

  • Expanding the scope of visual arts programming in Birmingham, Alabama and beyond

  • Attracting artists to Birmingham

  • Helping artists contextualize their artwork within Birmingham and its history

  • Creating a dialog with other arts institutions in the US and internationally

  • Showcasing all forms of visual art with an emphasis on emerging and experimental art forms, and art that pushes the boundaries of its medium

  • Championing diversity; exhibiting and supporting artists from underrepresented groups

  • Upholding high standards for ethical and environmental impact in our methods and materials
