Spring Newsletter  2023 

Spring has sprung- renewal and rebirth! Buds on the trees, daffodils in bloom and warmer temperatures inspire us to jump into new projects with a renewed enthusiasm.  The timing couldn’t be better, since we have several months to prepare for the MAS 48th Annual Juried Show in August.  The MAS board of directors is always inspired to support your artistic endeavors by bringing you great events, plenty of exhibition opportunities and a chance to meet other artists.  Take a look at what’s in the air, besides spring!
