It is sad but true; there will not be a live, three-day MAA art exhibit in the Kensington Armory on Labor Day weekend this year. The town of Kensington has confirmed that the events will not take place due to the pandemic quarantine.
But MAA is getting so adept at putting on online exhibits that we are pressing ahead with six online events to make up for this!
We are keeping the name Paint The Town (PTT) but there are no restrictions about Kensington art this year. Each month from July - December we will conduct a judged online exhibit for a specific category. We will hold an online Zoom reception/award meeting with the judge (each show will have a different judge). We will also hold an online Zoom Artist's Salon during the exhibit to encourage artists to share background about their painting.
Here is the schedule (Reception / Salon dates may change):
June 12-19 Call for entries
July 1-31 Landscape exhibit online
July 5 Reception & Awards with Judge
July 19 Artist's Salon

MAA membership is required for participation, and renewals will be needed for the September and beyond online exhibit. As previously mentioned, MAA memberships will be reduced to half price ($25) for renewals prior completed prior to September 1.
