WHAT WE DO
93 years of discovering what connects us through the arts.
ALERT: The MSA gallery will be CLOSED on Sunday, October 24 due to concerns about the weather. Everything from heavy rain and wind to floods, mudslides, power-outages and dangerous road conditions have been predicted.
Of course, we are hoping that none of these dire events actually take place (except for the rain). But we will err on the side of safety.
Our 94th Annual Show Reception is still scheduled for 4pm. Here is the link:
The passcode is MSA.
Hopefully we will have no power-outages at that time. We hope to see you all at the reception!

Marin Society of Artists is a non-profit organization dedicated since 1927 to promoting the arts in our community. We partner with non-profit organizations and others to provide a broad array of arts and enrichment opportunities.
MSA and our partners sponsor ongoing programs at the Art Centre and in the community that promote cultural enrichment and the arts in all forms. Our Main Gallery, Flex Gallery & Ground Floor Galleries house new displays of original art every month, most available for purchase.
We foster activities that encourage the general public & under served communities to explore and incorporate the arts and enrichment activities in their lives. We support artists of multiple disciplines at all stages of their development.
