It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year at MAAG…

Over the last few weeks, we’ve been busy at the Mt. Airy Art Garage. Really busy. But, to us, the chaos of productivity means three things: Community, Connections, and Art.  Between our grand opening, hosting POST (Philadelphia Open Studio Tours), and prepping for our first exhibit, “Recapturing Memories” by Meei Ling Ng, we haven’t had […]

“Recapturing Memories” : a review by guest blogger Diana Tedone

We just opened our new installation by Meei Ling Ng. See it through the eyes of one of our artist  members… and special thanks, as always, to Alix Passage, photographer.

A Re-Cap & A Reach-Out

Over the last three weeks, we’ve been busy. Real busy. But, to us, the chaos of productivity means three things: Community, Connections, and Art. Since our inception, nearly two years ago, MAAG has always stood behind these principles and, as we expand, we’re reminded even more of their importance.  First and foremost, our doors are officially […]
