The Art of Photography – Art Show

The Art of Photography, MAAG’s Photography-exclusive show, will take place September 10 – October 3, 2021. We are dedicating this show and renaming the Gallery to the memory of Solomon Levy, one of our devoted founding members.  “The Art of Photography”, happening from September 10 – October 3, 2021, will be on display at the MAAG Gallery located at 7054 Germantown Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19119.

Ever since the mid-1800’s, photography has garnered the attention and captivated the imagination of the world. For the first time in human history, actual images of people, places, and more could be replicated with 100% accuracy. This led to countless artists taking up the medium, showing us the world in new and fascinating ways, through their respective lenses. With The Art of Photography, we invited photographers of all stripes to submit their artwork to be displayed in the MAAG Gallery.
