About Us

Montgomery Art Association was formed in 1954 and incorporated in 1991 as a 501(c)3 non-profit to support the visual arts and artists in Montgomery County and the D.C. metro area.

MAA offers a number of opportunities for members to display and sell their work. We sponsor two premier, juried member shows and offer a number of other shows at smaller venues in Montgomery County, Md., throughout the year.

MAA strives to make a vital contribution to our community. In cooperation with the Montgomery College Art Foundation, MAA provides scholarship funds to foster the education of emerging artists. We also support community events, such as the Wheaton Arts Parade and the Kensington Day of the Book Festival.

MAA uses income received from sales commissions, membership dues, contributions, exhibit entry fees, and subsidized workshop entry fees to finance exhibits and awards, equipment purchases, guest speakers, and outreach projects.
