MAPAPA Virtual Exhibition - Share the Art You Have Made During Shelter in Place

Theme: This virtual exhibit focuses on art that you have been creating during the time while you have been at home. Realizing that plein air gatherings like regional events have been cancelled or postponed, this virtual exhibit is open to include a wide variety of subject matter and is not confined to plein air landscapes.  Figurative, still life, interiors, landscapes from past ideas and virtual painting sessions that have been hosted in our region are all eligible to be entered into this virtual show. 

Prizes: First Prize: $300, Second Prize $200, Third Prize $100 and 3 Honorable Mentions at $50.

Eligibility: Participants must be current MAPAPA members in good standing. Others can join MAPAPA to become participants for this and future exhibitions hosted on our website. Lapsed members must join before submitting works to the exhibition.

Dates: Submit digital files to the following email address should be submitted no later than August 31, 2020. Submit entries to mapapa.pleinair@gmail.com by clicking on the link below:

All submission must include the name of the artist, the title and date of the work of art and the dimensions in inches of the piece being submitted within the text of the email submission. Please label the subject line of the email "Your Name" - "Mid-Atlantic Virtual Gallery Submission"

This event announcement will be posted to our calendar soon to provide a point of reference that includes all details.  An email was sent to all current active members.


Annual Meeting 2020

The MAPAPA Board continues to discuss and determine options to host the 2020 Annual Meeting in the safest manner that conforms to the guidelines for gatherings during this pandemic. While a tentative date in August has been issued, the Board must review state guidelines and conditions near the time of the meeting prior to confirming the final date and the agenda. Updated information will be sent to members who have registered for the meeting.  Stay tuned to this website and emails that will be sent to provide further information.



MAPAPA is happy to share with our members your paint out event. However, we need some basic information to help us do that.  Please visit THIS LINK to our mapapa.org website where we have a quick, easy form to complete that will be forwarded to our board for posting on our website.
