Don't forget...our annual meeting is this next Saturday, 11/17, between 10:00 am and 2:00 pm at the Grace Hudson Museum. Bring some finger food and some of your artwork to share. There won't be any swap meet this year, but we will be teasing you with some details about the upcoming program for 2019.
For more than 60 years many, many people have put their hearts and hands into keeping MCAA rolling along. However, no one has expressed a willingness to help out with several functions/ positions publicized for quite some time. We know people are very busy these days.
The Board will need to meet to consider if MCAA can continue to do the many things we try to do for the Members. Without more committed help, we will need to determine whether MCAA can be “reshaped” so that the organization can remain sustainable.
If you have thoughts on how MCAA might conserve energy, streamline, or otherwise “reshape” itself, please e-mail Diana Steele at or call 707-743-2256 to discuss your ideas.

Guidelines and eligibility are available on the CERF+ website. The application process is quick and easy, with a rapid response of 2 weeks to give artists the help they need as soon as possible.
The Joan Mitchell Foundation's Emergency Grant Program is available for painters and sculptors who have suffered physical losses due to a natural disaster that relate to their artistic practice. Click here to learn more.
