MFA Members are making the world more creative! MFA highlights members’ art events and exhibitions weekly on our Blog so the world can follow us.



MFA Member Sally Davies

It’s always a rare occasion when we tell you to turn on the TV but tune into MPT Thursday, Dec 15 at 8:30 p.m. to see Davies art featured in the POP-UP Gallery! The invitational segment MPT does allows artists to reach a much wider audience than just hanging their pieces in a regular gallery.
