“The Midway Art Association’s (MAA) mission is to encourage amateur and professional artists by providing opportunities for association with other artists, learning from workshops, field trips and demonstrations, and by painting and selling fine art in planned events.”
Greetings to our MAA members and supporters!
Since we have not been able to meet in person for over a year now, we wanted to give you an update on our recent activities and let you know what we have in store for MAA.
Until we can get back together again safely, we have started scheduling monthly guest artist demonstrations by Zoom. David Dean presented demos in February and March by Zoom, and Steve Stauffer is scheduled for a Zoom demo on April 28th. Please look out for the email notice from Midway Art Association for details and instructions on getting the link to the upcoming meetings.
There have been some changes with our studio space in the Midway Community Center, which we have used for painting classes in the past. In order to accommodate the needs of other groups in Midway, the City has offered us a different space for exclusive use by MAA. Going forward, we will have access to space for classes and meetings in the upstairs level of Midway Town Hall at 120 W. Main St, just above the MAA Gallery. Aside from our close proximity to the Gallery, another advantage of this is that we will be located in the same building as our major events, including Wasatch Plein Air Paradise. We believe this space will offer us an opportunity for future classes and workshops, as well as additional options going forward for equipment storage and other meetings.
We also hope to have some exciting news coming soon about Plein Air Utah, our fall event in conjunction with the Plein Air Painters of Utah. Look out for further information.
We’ve received some questions about new memberships and renewals. Since we have suspended all in person events, the MAA Board decided to freeze all memberships for now. We plan to resume collecting annual memberships as soon as we begin regular in-person events, which we hope to do very soon. In the meantime, we hope you will visit the MAA Gallery at Midway Town Hall – the Gallery is open every Friday and Saturday, 10:00 am – 5:00 pm.
We all look forward to seeing you again soon!
