Welcome to the website of the Montgomery Art Association (MAA). Established in 1954, and incorporated as a 501(c)3 non-profit in 1991, MAA supports the visual arts in the Washington Metropolitan area. Our members, 18 and over, come from throughout the area, including Maryland, Virginia, and DC. They include beginning and experienced artists, amateurs as well as professionals, working in a variety of media and styles. We sponsor regular lectures and artist demonstrations, member exhibits, museum field trips, a Gallery store in a major shopping center, an online Members display and sales Gallery, and community outreach through our children’s art activities and college scholarship program. Join us! All are welcome, and our membership dues are only $40/year ($20/year for full-time college students).
This website is a resource for our members as well as for those looking to learn more about MAA and its events, the arts in our area, and the work of our members. Reviewing the site briefly:
Race to the Start!!. Yes, the MAA year begins with a rush, and frantic activity! Get ready, get set, Go!
The Kensington Paint the Town Show, which has become our largest event of the year, is right around the corner. It is a massive effort to plan, prepare, and execute this wonderfully large show. It is now an established staple of the Kensington Labor Day celebration, and foundation of MAA’s public face, member sales opportunity, and financial well-being. This year, we have over 548 entries submitted by 120 of our members, exceeding even last year’s numbers. The event is in the most capable hands of Past President, Michael Shibley, and a host of volunteers too numerous to mention here by name. But, it would not happened without every entrant pitching in.
Most of all, come to the Kensington Show, enjoy the time talking with MAA colleagues, attendees, and clients. Bask in the wonderful artwork that our collective selves have created, enter the Plein Air Event on Saturday, and prepare to sip some wine and have some goodies at the Awards reception Saturday 5 evening (and, maybe receive an award yourself).
And if you have been in summer hibernation, it is time to create, create, create.
