MFA Members are making the world more creative! Check out what our Members are up to this month.

Members and MFA Exhibitions

MFA is hosting three juried exhibitions in May. Flora or Fauna, a nature-themed exhibition at the Calvert Marine Museum, has 17 MFA Members involved, and the awards were announced early in April. At Circle Gallery, we’re exhibiting the Spring Member Show with only Members (55 of them in fact) and we’re hosting a digital reception on May 16th. Last, we have MASKulinity, a show devoted to the faces and roles of masculinity in society, and we have 23 MFA Members involved.

Lesley Giles

MFA Member Lesley Giles is honored to have received a 2021 Independent Arts Award from the Maryland State Arts Council, presented by Yumi Hogan at a virtual ceremony. 66 artists were awarded from a submission of 540 highly talented individuals and Lesley is the only awardee from Dorchester County on the Eastern Shore. Her main submission was “Covid Washing Lines,” a series that evolved during Lockdown. Women were clearing out their closets and hanging out laundry which they photographed for social media. “Sally’s Scarves,” featured here, is the first painting in this series.
