Images by MAA Artists
The images and text expressed or displayed in the web galleries by MAA members do not reflect the views of the Manotick Art Association. Should you have any comments or concerns about its content, please contact the exhibiting artist(s) directly and/or bring it to the webmaster's attention.
Members wishing to have their artwork displayed in MAA's website, can send up to five images to the webmaster for inclusion in the Artist Gallery.
If possible, each image should be 1500 pixels along the longest side. It is best to provide the images Title as you would like it to appear in the Gallery, as well as a short bio and any contact information you wish to provide.
Don't be concerned if you are unable to meet the 1500 pixel limit.... WE CAN FIX IT !
