      About the show: Windridge Vineyards in Darnestown will host the next MAA members quarterly exhibit,  Summer Art At Windridge  in the Tasting Room.  

      Prospectus: Please read the Show Prospectus in full for registration information and show requirements. 

      Theme: Summer has been celebrated in art for millennia.  As the summer months arrive, we enjoy the more pleasant temperatures and longer days. We revel in the characteristic lightness of being that accompanies the warmer season.  Let our art reflect the undeniable warmth, light and carefree sense of summer. 

      Submissions: MAA has created a digital library that member artists can submit up to 2 works per member for consideration in any of the following categories: 

      • natural landscapes, maritime and seascapes
      • cityscapes, townscapes, urbanscapes 
      • still life 
      • abstract art 

      Media eligible:  2 D works in oil, acrylic, watercolor, mixed media, pastel, encaustic, drawing/ink mediums and photography.  3D works not included in this show. 

      Cost: There is no cost to submit your work to for consideration by Windridge for the show. If your artwork is selected by the curators, a fee of $10 will be required. Payment will be collected at drop off.  

      Juried process: Submitted artwork will be juried by the vineyard owners. Approximately 18-20 selected work will be exhibited for a three-month period. All artwork must be for sale. Sold works may be replaced by the artist with a similarly size piece. Replacement artwork will be managed by the MAA show manager not Windridge.  Windridge will notify artists when work is sold.
