How to Vote for The Maine Artist Collective:
The Constellation Gallery’s, home of the Maine Artist Collective (MAC), for five years, recently held its most successful call for art with the Miniature exhibit, which just ended on January 29th. Five artists sold work and hundreds viewed the show over a two-month period. But during the month of December the owners of the building hosting the Constellation Gallery announced that the gallery space was under contract to be leased to another tenant. While the Constellation Gallery is closing MAC will continue.
We are planning gallery shows across the state in different locations throughout the summer, autumn and holiday season. MAC’s traveling shows will offer special opportunities to members to exhibit their work in new locations highlighted on our new website, http://www.maineartistcollective.org and in the press.
MAC will also be announcing educational opportunities.
Unfortunately, closing the gallery has hit us hard financially so this grant would really help us transition.
The mission of the Maine Artist Collective, a 501(c)-3 non-profit, is to connect the public with Maine artists and support development by providing exhibition space, education, and professional workshops.
