During this second annual exhibition, Materials for the Arts will showcase work created by members of its diverse group of recipients. All exhibited work is inspired from materials found at MFTA and is a testament to the artistic merit of reuse. The exhibit will be on view in the MFTA Gallery from March 5, 2015 through April 8, 2015. An opening reception will be held on March 5, 2015 from 6:30PM – 8:30PM.

Eligibility: Open to all MFTA members. The theme of the show is reuse. All media is welcome but mixed media that represents MFTA’s range is strongly encouraged. Work must be no more than 15″ in any direction including the framing or mounting. This will be strictly enforced. All work must be suitably framed, wired and ready for hanging. Works on paper must be framed under Plexiglas or glass. No free standing of ceiling hanging sculptures will be accepted.
