The Montgomery Art Association is a nonprofit supporting the visual arts and artists in Montgomery County and the D.C. metro area.
MAA offers a number of opportunities for our nearly 300 members to display and sell their work. They include the annual Paint the Town Labor Day Show in Kensington, where we display hundreds pieces of art in a judged show and attract more than 3,000 visitors over the holiday weekend. We also offer field trips, plein air painting outings, business workshops, art-themed social events and monthly meetings with noteworthy guest speakers.
MAA strives to make a vital contribution to our community. In partnership with the Montgomery College Art Foundation, we provide scholarships to emerging artists. We also support and participate in such community events as the Rockville Arts Festival, Wheaton Arts Parade and Maryland Day of the Arts.MAA uses income received from sales commissions, membership dues, donations, exhibit entry fees and subsidized workshop entry fees to finance exhibits and awards, equipment purchases, guest speakers, and outreach projects.
