Love: An Art Exhibit

The Mt. Airy Art Garage (MAAG) invites you to our latest exhibit, “Love: An Art Exhibit,” happening from February 14 – March 26, 2021 at the new home of MAAG, 7054 Germantown Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19119.

What does Love mean to you? With everything we’ve seen in the past year, love is more important than ever. We asked our members to think about what love means to them. Love for others, yourself, family, your community, nature, the possibilities are endless!

Go to the Mt. Airy Art Garage and explore the works of multiple local artists as they explore what love means to them.

The show will be on display from February 14 through March 26, 2021.

Makers & Lovers – Opening Reception

Makers and Lovers is the final of three exhibits MAAG will mount at The Philadelphia Theatre Company. The conclusion of the season will feature the world premiere of How to Catch Creation, an inspirational story running March 22 – April 14, 2019. In honor of Women’s History Month, the exhibition, in various mediums, include themes of race, feminism, diversity, sexuality and of being black, queer and female in America.
In the mid-1960s, a black, queer, feminist writer’s life is changed when her girlfriend tells her some unexpected news. Fifty years later, the reverberations of that moment still echo in the lives of four individuals in the rapidly changing city of San Francisco. Christina Anderson’s stunning and complex examination of the universal act of creation—creation of life, of family, of art—spans space and time to inspire a new generation of makers and lovers. So it only makes sense that our final MAAG exhibition for the season is Makers and Lovers.
Contemporary artists interpret the themes of the show in a juried exhibit, Makers and Lovers.
How to Catch Creation show tickets available at the box office, and are not included in the exhibit.

The Road Not Taken

The Road Not Taken is the second of three exhibits MAAG will mount at The Philadelphia Theatre Company. The Road Not Taken will accompany the production of The Bridges of Madison County, which will run from February 8 – March 3, 2019. In this soaring romance, Francesca Johnson, a beautiful Italian woman who married an American soldier to flee war-ravaged Italy, looks forward to a rare four days alone on her Iowa farm in 1965. However, her quiet escape is upended when ruggedly handsome National Geographic photographer Robert Kincaid pulls into her driveway seeking directions. What happens next in those four days may very well alter the course of Francesca’s life.

The shows opening reception is February 8th, 2019 at 6:30 PM.

The show closing party is March 3rd, 2019.
