2017 List of Up-Coming Meetings TO BE ANNOUNCED: Guests are always welcome to join us.

Monday, March 21st 2016, at 7:00 p.m. at Parkview

Program will be "Critique of New Work and personal goals for 2016". All members and guests are encouraged to bring their latest works to have critiqued by the group. Perhaps you have a work that you are stuck on, bring it along for fresh ideas and perspectives. Maybe you are trying a new technique and would like some feedback. Do you have an older painting lying around that you aren't quite satisfied with?  MAG members can look at it with different eyes.
