    MAA is pleased to be back at La Galleria at Ranazul Restaurant in Fulton for a summer show. This is a cozy venue, with all of the art hung in the central open banquet room of the restaurant.

    The theme for the July exhibit is "Summertime." Artists are encouraged to submit an artwork that reflect the joy, fun, and camaraderie of the summer season. Tantalizing paintings of food could be a plus!

    In addition to hosting this art exhibit, Ranazul will provide a sumptuous opening reception for artists and their friends and family. Please plan to attend!

    See the Prospectus for full details.

    MAA is excited to hold our first member show at The Meeting House Gallery in Columbia. Several of our members have participated as individuals at this venue; one of the special aspects of this Gallery is the opportunity to show large 2D art.

     Hundreds of visitors come to The Meeting House every week, either to attend religious services (5 separate congregations) - or to attend meetings, celebrations, and other events. 

    The MAA exhibit will include a hosted reception that will also offer participating artists to bring cards and prints for sale.

    The Meeting House Gallery requires that all participating artists be vetted for suitability in this Interfaith Center. The registration is a two part process in which The Meeting House reviews sample art images of all applicants. Selected artists will then register with their final pieces.

    Full information can be found on the show Prospectus.
