Call for Artists: Lifeblood

Lifeblood

MAAG’s Annual Member Show

February 6 – March 18, 2022

The Mt. Airy Art Garage (MAAG) invites all member artists to submit their art for “Lifeblood”, happening from February 6 – March 18, 2022 at the MAAG Gallery located at 7054 Germantown Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19119.

Lifeblood at MAAG will be our first gallery show of the new year. We are welcoming in 2022 by showing love and appreciation to our member artists. Thank you to our members who participated in our Gallery Shows, MAAG Rocks Art, The Holiday Art Markets, and to all those members who have supported us through the years. MAAG has remained strong and more committed than ever to fulfill our mission: To foster civic engagement and community revitalization through the arts.

We chose the title Lifeblood for this show since it strongly represents what our members mean to the MAAG organization. Lifeblood is “the indispensable factor or influence that gives something its strength and vitality.” Help us celebrate our growth and accomplishments by participating in this year’s member show.

Lifeblood will include all mediums including handcrafts and fine art, both two dimensional works and sculpture, extending our Gift Shop into the Gallery. There is no charge to submit to this Members Only Show. Artists may submit up to two (2) pieces of art no larger than 4′ X 4′ to be on display and for sale in this upcoming exhibit. All work must be framed and ready to hang. If you are submitting sculpture you will need to provide your own pedestal.
