In spring 2020, MFA is celebrating Anne Arundel County artists with a studio tour. On the weekends before and after Annapolis Arts Week and Paint Annapolis, artists, art groups, and galleries will open their doors to invite the public into art-making spaces across the county. Each artist will also have a piece on exhibition at a gallery space hosted by MFA and promoted during Annapolis Arts Week and Paint Annapolis.  

MFA wants to get your art out there! We are coordinating marketing for artists’ studio tours in Anne Arundel County. The tour will be June 6-7 and June 13-14, from 10 am – 4 pm – the weekends of Annapolis Arts Week when the whole area is promoting and celebrating the arts!

MFA will highlight each participating artist in the Studio Tour Guide available both in print and online; ad space will also be available in the guide for further promotion. MFA will also provide yard signage and outdoor banners to highlight artists’ spaces. We want to get art patrons to your studios and any sales you make are between you and your customer!

  • Sign up today! When you register upload an image of something you believe is representative of your work. Registration is per artist and registration fees are non-refundable.
