The Media Arts Council Artist Registry is an online directory of local artists, musicians, actors, dancers, arts and cultural organizations, and even professionals in the arts industry. As part of our ongoing mission to support local artists, we have created the M.A.C. Artist Registry to provide online exposure for each artist with their own page and links directly to the artist’s own website. This valuable online resource provides artists who have little or no exposure on the Internet a way to be seen and contacted. These pages help all artists gain higher positions in Internet search results – increasing their chances of being noticed. The Registry is also used when placing artists in 2nd Saturday businesses and by the public for purchasing art directly from the artist.

Joining the Artist Registry is easy and only costs $30 a year. The membership cycle will consist of One Year, with opportunity for renewal. Our registry is open to all types of artists; including visual artists, fashion designers, web designers, photographers, musicians and more.
Art Exhibit OpportunitiesArt is meant to be seen; we try to promote art exhibits and sales featuring M.A.C. Registry Artists. These exhibits transform a vacant real estate space in downtown Media into a temporary gallery showcasing the best of local artwork. All Registry Artists are invited to participate. Artists benefit from a highly publicized opportunity to exhibit and sell work, free for those with paid Registry dues. The public is invited to attend opening receptions with additional hours all week long. Artwork includes paintings, photography, sculpture, jewelry, handbags, collage, and more.
2nd Saturday ExhibitsRegistry Artists benefit every month, when we provide unique opportunities to showcase their work, perform live in State Street businesses, and take part in the monthly arts stroll – further exposing their work to the public and potential buyers. In addition, we host a Featured Artist every month by spotlighting one artist in all of our promotional material, including this website!
