MACA ART ALLIANCE 2017-12-04T11:31:05+00:00


The MAA Artist Membership is open to any artist. Our members include seasoned professionals, students and up-and-coming artists who are honing their craft.

Membership is our basic fund-raising mechanism.  You are invited to join MAA as an individual, or as a business or corporate sponsor.  Whichever category you choose, you are contributing directly to the work we do advocating and promoting the arts in Monroe County.

The MACA Art Alliance is a not-for-profit cooperative     marketing, promotional and membership organization  working on behalf of artists in the Monroe area.

We seek to foster an environment in which art strengthens our County’s image, economic vitality and quality of life.

The Art Alliance has been created to assist artists in the community.  One of its first acts has been partnering with Madisonville Public Library to create a gallery of art to display work of community visual artists   At present, we are considering locations throughout the county to display more local art.

Because not everyone is a visual artist, MACA wants to provide those with artistic interest and experience in music and theatre a means to share their artistic abilities.  In the coming year, MACA wants to explore the possibility of a community theatre, a literary journal, and special musical events.

To realize this new and better MACA, we need your help.  We need your ideas on how to best fulfill these goals.  We need your experience and talents to make the arts more vital in the life of the Monroe Area.

You don’t have to be an artist to join, you just have to appreciate art!

MACA Art Alliance Exhibit at Charles Hall Museum

The Monroe Area Council for the Arts is exhibiting art from its Art Alliance members in the Charles Hall Museum in Tellico Plains.  The exhibit, in the spirit of the eclipse, features artwork related to the eclipse and the heavens by local artists.  The Art Alliance will continue to display new artwork at the Charles Hall Museum in the future.

This is the second exhibit space in Monroe County that the MACA Art Alliance displays the work of local artists.  The first, the Madisonville Public Library, now has new artwork on display. Much of the artwork at both locations is for sale to the general public.
