MAGallery Grand Opening


Growth is the key word for the Madison Artists Guild, which will soon open the doors to its new gallery space at 217 W. Jefferson St. in Madison, GA. Founded in 1985, the guild has quickly grown from a handful of inspired individuals to over 150, and while they’ve always maintained a positive presence in the community through their ongoing exhibitions at the Cottage Gallery, the new MAGallery is a significant step for the artists. It provides both room to display a wider range of artwork—everything from paintings and photography to pottery and leatherwork by 22 initial artists—and space for public art classes. The opening will be a chance to warm up the space and browse works from the inclusive and diverse team. Flagpole theme song winner Johnny Roquemore provides musical entertainment for the evening. Admission is free and the event will run from 6-9 p.m.
