Juried Painting Exhibit – 2021

“Emergence” is the theme of the 5th annual MAC open juried painting show during the month of May.  The broad scope of this theme was interpreted in a myriad of ways. Area artists submitted 116 works out of which 38 were selected by our  juror,  Nancy Barch, (NancyBarch.com) local artist, teacher, award winner, and Signature Member of the American Watercolor Society. The live virtual opening was May 8th at 4pm. At right is the video recording through Zoom

Media Arts Council Special Exhibits Committee welcomes all professional artists in the region to submit works annually for our painting exhibition.
