Art that makes you think

“Member’s Gallery”

The MAC hosts a series of exhibits in the Member’s Gallery, which encircles the classroom space in our 513 building. Entries in any media are accepted 2-7 p.m. the first Tuesdays, every other month. The next intake will be Dec. 4. The work is juried that evening and hung the next day; it will be displayed until Feb. 5, when it can be retrieved 2-7 p.m. There is no charge for entering, but the MAC retains a 40 percent commission on sales. The MAC hosts potlucks and Critique Forums 5-6:30 p.m. the same day as the intake. Bring your work, food or beverage to share, and your creative ideas and questions.

The requirements:

1) You must be a MAC member. Cost: student, $25; individual, $40; family, $50; and senior (60-plus) and military, $35. Additional levels: bronze, $100; silver, $250; and gold, $500. For membership info, contact LuDel Walter, or 685-1861.
