let the world know about you and your art

By May 21, 2014 Me & My Art, Member News

MFA is using our blog to let the world know about our members and the art they create.

Me & MY ART MONDAYS “Me & My Art” is a Monday MFA blog post that introduces individual MFA artist members to our entire blog readership. If you are a current MFA member, this is an opportunity to share a little bit about yourself, your art, and your connection to MFA. The blog post is edited by Patrice Drago – author of The Gallery column that appears each month in The Capital, Annapolis’s daily newspaper.

  • To be featured, all you have to do is answer the following questions in about 350 words
  • Send a picture of you, and a picture of your art, or one picture of you with your art – please be sure we can see your face so people can recognize you!
  • Send both to meandmyart@mdfedart.org. Patrice will edit and post depending on content, medium and relevance to current MFA exhibitions.

Here is your assignment!

1. ME: Tell us about YOU. This is the conversation that takes place when you first meet someone and they ask: So, where do you live? When did you start (painting, sculpting, etc). If you have another job, what is your background? Do you have your own studio?

2. MY ART: Describe your art, your process, your inspiration. This is like a short version of your artist statement – people want to know about your work. What’s your medium? Where do you find inspiration? Include your website address if you have one; or a link to a gallery page or exhibit where your work is displayed.

3. MFA and Me: Please include the year you joined MFA. Then write a few sentences about what does MFA means to you. How do you participate with MFA? What experiences have you had?

    Thanks to MFA a lot of people have looked me up because I was featured in ME & MY ART and I am getting all sorts of attention. I highly recommend this for all artists who are MFA members to step up and do themselves a huge favor. This is a great opportunity for you to shine. Two Thumbs-up!
