In the absence of our regular in-person art shows, MAA is hosting several online exhibits in 2020. Each exhibit will include judging, awards, and artist's salons. The painting above is The Scouts by Lis Zadravek.
The October show category is Portraits. We will actually have two exhibits simultaneously, one for People Portraits and one for Animal Portraits. Each MAA Member can submit one artwork in each of the two subcategories. PLEASE NOTE: All artwork in MAA exhibits must be available for sale. MAA manages sales, including sales tax and 20% commission.
Recognition in each subcategory will be made for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places; an award presentation will be held via Zoom on early in October (date to be determined) to have the judge, Kevin King present the awards as well as his perspectives on the entire exhibit and the specific art pieces that are receiving awards.
Please refer to the Show Prospectus for full information.
Please join MAA and judge Kevin King for the announcement of our October Portrait Exhibition awards. Kevin will give out awards in the People and Animal categories and will provide remarks about the show overall and the winning works
We'll also hear about Kevin's nonprofit organization, The King's Canvas, which bolsters underexposed and underdeveloped artists in communities in Montgomery, Alabama. "These opportunities combat poverty, lack of education, lack of resources and mental health," Kevin says. "Connectivity in our city, state, nation and the world is what is needed to propel their work or their brand."
This event is free and will be held on Zoom. The Zoom link will be sent to registrants in their confirmation emails, with a reminder coming your way the day before the event.
Please note that for Zoom, we can only accept 100 Zoom participants, giving preference to participants in the exhibit. Learn more about how to use Zoom on this page.
Artists typically know only one side of the art world - creating and displaying artwork. There is another side that is lesser known - run by galleries and art centers. These art businesses are forced to make hard decisions everyday.
Director of Exhibitions at Strathmore, Lesley Lundgren, will shed light on some of these hard gallery and museum decisions by telling short stories ranging from donations to artist agreements to working with the public.
Lesley Lundgren has a background in public programming. She studied Arts Management at American University, earning a Master of Arts in 2013. She was their first Master’s Candidate accepted into the Arts Business exchange program with Sotheby’s Institute of Art in London. Lesley is responsible for overseeing Strathmore’s exhibition schedule and delights in curating exhibitions that amaze audiences and support visual artists in Montgomery County and the surrounding region.
Registration is open October 12 - 19, 2020
