MAA is an all-volunteer organization. From our president and board of directors, to those who organize gallery field trips, set up buffets at our shows and write posts for Instagram, MAA relies on the collaborative spirit of our membership to operate.
“Through volunteering at MAA, I have befriended scores of talented artists who inspire me, guide me, and perhaps most importantly, understand me,” says Anastasia Walsh, our volunteer treasurer and a member since 2017. “It is gratifying to set the stage for success for all of us and learning new skills in exhibition and digital marketing.”
- Vice President, Shows & Exhibits: This officer position is now more of a strategic role, looking at the year ahead for opportunities, maintaining (or developing) standards for MAA shows, and supporting the Show Managers. The person filling this role may also need to step into the Show Manager role when necessary. You will be guided along the way by other members of the Board and members who have been involved in our shows. Contact: Alan Rich, firstname.lastname@example.org, or Anastasia Walsh, email@example.com.
- Show Managers: We are looking for show managers for our fall 2019 shows. We will provide training and support while giving you the opportunity to set up, hang, and present an art exhibit. Our shows in 2019 range from small library and restaurant exhibits to larger shows at Kensington Paint the Town. You can work in pairs or trios or solo. Read the MAA Shows job description. Contact: Anastasia Walsh, firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Equipment Manager: We have a storage unit with display panels, lights, card & print bins, and hospitality items. The Equipment Manager would make sure any items are delivered to the show they serve (mostly the Kensington Paint the Town show on Labor Day Weekend). Some items are available for loan to members, and the equipment manager also keeps a record of what is loaned. You probably need an SUV or similar vehicle to transport items to the show. The Storage Unit is in Kensington. Contact Anastasia Walsh, email@example.com
