The Show That Never Was

MEMBERS Virtual Art Show

June 10th—30th, 2020


Submissions deadline:  June 5 midnight


The MGA Annual Juried Show was unfortunately cancelled this year due to Covid 19, but that hasn’t stopped us from wanting to celebrate our members’ creative spirits and declare that the show must go on — although with adaptations.  Registration is now open for submissions to“The Show That Never Was” an unjuried show held virtually on our website, Facebook and Instagram from June 10-30, 2020. This gives our 2019-2020 members an opportunity to have their works displayed as part of the complete show on the MGA website while also being featured individually on Instagram and Facebook. 


Each member may submit 2 paintings.  There is no cost to enter and no commission on any paintings sold.  Your paintings can be linked to your website, Instagram and Facebook, according to your wishes. If a buyer is interested in purchasing your work, MGA will forward the contact information to each artist who will handle the sale directly.


The show will be launched in its entirety on the MGA website on June 10th.  Each artist will be featured separately on MGA’s Facebook and Instagram sites (one or two artists per day depending on the number of submissions).
