The Manchester Art Association is governed by officers and a board of directors. We run our organization according to our bylaws. We hold monthly board meetings and monthly member meetings September through May. After our May meeting, we produce our annual report. We distribute newsletters by email and postal mail for those without computers. Visit the newsletter archive to get an idea of our activities.

MAA Board Zoom meeting

During the pandemic, MAA’s main goal is to keep everyone safe. Our options for meeting may look different down the road, but we are closely watching the CT landscape and intend to follow directions on how and when to gather. In the meantime, your Board will meet online (shown above), to support artistic endeavors for our members and other interested artists in our community. You will continue to receive emails with community news, online art options and updates as well as those we have all been enjoying - “A Time for Art”. We will have additional web opportunities for our artists. This is a time of change and flexibility; we hope you understand and that we have your support. If you have any questions or suggestions, please let us know via email at We look forward to the time when we can safely create and appreciate art together.
