The Manotick Art Association (MAA) is a non-profit organization with a mission to support, encourage and foster the development of artists within the Rideau Valley area.
We are celebrating our 40th anniversary during the 2014/2015 season! Many exciting activities and events are planned for the upcoming year – we invite you to browse through our site and get to know more about MAA and our talented artists.
Guests are welcome at any regular meeting:
7:30 to 9:30pm Usually the first Tuesday of the month from September through June
Tomkins Hall, lower level of St. James Anglican Church
1138 Bridge St., Manotick, ON
Always informative and a chance to socialize with fellow artists, the meetings begin with MAA business, announcements of interest and a welcome to new members. After a brief break for refreshments, our featured guest speaker, chosen from various disciplines in the art world, will give a presentation. A list of recent guest speakers may be found here.
At one of the meetings during the year, we arrange for a critique of members' artwork by a local prominent artist. Get-togethers in June and December are potluck socials and there are no meetings during July and August.
