MFA Sponsored Event

For more than 50 years, Maryland Federation of Art has been dedicated to bringing art into our daily environments.

We maintain the oldest continuously operating non-profit gallery in the state.

Become a Collector

Find artwork you love by getting to know our artists. Why buy generic art for your home when you can have original artwork you choose, not work chosen for you.

Artists: Find the right place for you

Find the Exhibition Opportunity that’s right for you. We provide artists with many different types of exhibition opportunities at our varied venues so you’ll find what type of location and/or exhibition works for you.

Come see for yourself

Stop by MFA galleries to change up the day to day. Get your art fix without having to go to a big city.

We have a lot of PARTIES!

Yes, totally cliché but true, we love cheese and wine. The best part about that: we share!
Come to our Sunday receptions and mingle, enjoy, and shop!

Get involved!

You don’t have to be an artist to join in all the MFA festivities. You can volunteer with us, attend our events, and give back to the community by helping us grow and keep art alive in our communities.

Give and you shall receive

Our fundraisers are designed to not only keep our doors open but to give back to our supporters. Its all about art and artists…art on our walls, art on your walls…and doesn’t everyone love art!

Membership is available to artists around the world. Discounted rates, special opportunities, and lots of exposure. See what our members are making:

New art inspires new ideas.
Ideas have the power to transform our understanding of what tomorrow can be.
Ideas can also inspire growth: the growth of our cities, our communities, and each individual who resides there.

Art in Maryland is building a bridge between people, ideas, and perceptions.
