Open Studio Time is virtual via Zoom
Open Studio is Wednesday morning, 9:30 to 12 Noon via Zoom.
Zoom can be used for video conferencing and allows MAG artists to interact with each other and share their work and ideas. It's a great way to stay in touch with each other during this trying time. If you would like to join in the fun, please email our Zoom host, Maggie Hart at:
Photo Group: Photo Group will meet again on June 10th at 7:00 PM. We have had a good time at the previous meetings. It is not the same as in person but better than not. It was good to see everyone who came and the excellent photography. Anyone may attend whether or not they are a photographer, just email Margaret at and I will send you the link to the Zoom. If you haven't used it, it is easy, even I was able to do it easily.
Featured Artist Galleries on MAG website
We have created individual galleries on the MAG website, massasoitartguild.com, in order to give exhibiting members a bit more exposure. Each featured artist will be asked to submit 5 or 6 images of their work to be added to their gallery. The images may be the same as they are exhibiting or can be different. We will need the title, and a description or statement of 500 characters or less for each image. This will show on the image page. We can also link to your website or other online presence. Artists can also submit a statement to appear on the individual gallery "home page". Whatever other contact information you wish to have appear is up to you. Just remember it is public on the website. You may see the current ones under the "Featured Artist" button on the Home Page of our website. We think they look good and look forward to continuing to enhance our website through these difficult times. If you have any suggestions, we would like to hear them and will do our best (we are new to this!) to incorporate them.
Art is Not Cancelled. Through Art We Rise
We continue our Virtual Art Show on Facebook representing works created during this unprecedented time of wearing masks, social distancing and the surge of the Covid-19 virus. Please email photos of your work to Maggie Hart at firstname.lastname@example.org.
