Your support is vital so that we can continue to offer quality art programs to support our area children, adults and seniors!
Marlborough Arts is a regional, non-profit 501(c)3 center for fine art, the performing arts, and fine crafts.
We Need You !!
If you aren’t a member of the Arts Center, we hope you will consider joining now as a supporter of the Arts Center.
Every individual member is important. Not only do your dues support the organization’s overall mission of providing a center for the arts in this region, but you should also know that this is realized in the everyday activities. These include art shows, art classes, 4th Friday @ the Arts Cafe musical evenings, rentals of our beautiful building for special occasions, and, of course, the addition in mid-2015 of the “land next door” which has been developed into an ART PARK with walking trails, several sculptures installed with more welcome, and we grateful to receive donations toward development to continue the work.
Joining is simple! MAC holds the IRS 401(c)3 status and membership fee and donations are fully deductible. Complete the enclosed membership form, include a check made payable to “Marlborough Arts Center” and mail to Marlborough Arts Center, Attn: Membership, 231 North Main Street, Marlborough CT 06447. Or go to PayPal and pay on-line to firstname.lastname@example.org, but be certain to click the annual renewal level.
We suggest that you save our website, www.marlborougharts.org as a Favorite to see what Art Shows, classes, concerts, and other artistic events are scheduled. There you will also find a tab for the 4th Friday @ The Arts Café and a list of all musicians playing in 2018. This way you can plan ahead to come and enjoy these special fun and interactive evenings. Check local news media also for publicity on all events. We are particularly honored that the Connecticut Watercolor Society has again chosen MAC to host their Autumn Art Show in November, during which we also plan to open the Gift Shop for the Fall & Holiday season with one-of-a-kind artworks for sale. We are proud to be presenting in the spring of 2018 “East of the River Juried Art Show 2” as the first was tremendously successful including wonderful awards for the fabulous artist community in the region.
We always have several artistic and community events going on for which we truly need your support and welcome your participation. Do join us today! Thank you!
The Board of Directors, Marlborough Arts Center
