2023 Members & Elected Artists Exhibition
The artists who founded the Mystic Art Association (MAA) in 1913 did so with the intent of becoming a museum, to foster the arts in Mystic for practitioners and audiences alike. Over a century later, both goals have been achieved with MAA’s evolution into the modern-day Mystic Museum of Art (MMoA).
MMoA continues to honor its institutional history with the Members and Elected Artists Exhibition, an opportunity for all elected artist and artist members in good standing to share their artwork with the community. The Members and Elected Artists Exhibition is an “open” exhibition – based solely on the interests of the exhibiting artists.
The subject matter on display in 2023 is as varied and vibrant as the media in which it is captured, from the time-honored and venerable: oil on canvas, egg tempera on gesso board, watercolor, gouache, pastel, and ceramic; to newer media and techniques: acrylic, digital and altered photography, wax, and mixed media pieces that combine natural and manmade objects.
