Can you believe it? The Mt. Airy Art Garage is turning five years old this fall. It’s been an amazing journey and so gratifying—from our earliest 2009 Art Markets on Carpenter Lane, to a pop-up storefront exhibition, clothesline fundraisers in Ned Wolf Park and the build out of our glorious barn of a space (remember this famous pic on the left by Alix Passage?). Now we house changing exhibitions and events, monthly groups of writers, quilters, and visual artists, ongoing drawing groups, Quiltapaloozas, Poetry Slams, workshops, dances, and our resident artist studios.
We thank each and every one of you for your support, helping hands, belief and confidence in our vision for the Mt. Airy Art Garage. This continued expansion would not be possible without all of you.
We are now at a crossroads for MAAG. We have some major decisions ahead of us and want to hear your feedback, suggestions, and concerns. We also want to share our vision for the future and the groundwork we are laying to implement an ongoing arts hub within and by our community.
In the same way, we started off in 2009 by calling neighborhood meetings of artists and art lovers to get your input and commitment, we are inviting you now to a member gathering at the Mt. Airy Art Garage at 6:30 pm, on Wednesday, June 25 to plan the next five years. And we can’t do this without you!
Think about what we’ve accomplished so far, and what the future could hold. Please join us in bringing about the next phase.
