About Art at the MAC
The Marion Art Center has two floors of gallery space: the Cecil Clark Davis Gallery downstairs and the Patsy Francis Gallery upstairs. The MAC’s Exhibition Committee meets regularly to schedule shows and review proposals. Most exhibitions are scheduled at least six months in advance. The MAC hosts openings for each exhibition and offers opportunities for exhibiting artists to teach workshops or give artist presentations.
The MAC’s Cecil Clark Davis Gallery (lower gallery) consists of 420 square feet of wall space and 200 square feet of floor space. The Patsy Francis Gallery (upper gallery) has 300 square feet of wall space and 260 square feet of floor space. The MAC has eleven pedestals available for three-dimensional works. The Exhibitions Committee will also be accepting proposals for rotating outdoor sculpture beginning in Summer 2020.
In addition to our juried exhibits, members are invited to participate in two non-juried exhibitions a year: the Winter Members’ Show and the Summer Members’ Show. Not a MAC member yet? Click here to Join the MAC!

The Exhibition Committee will review new proposals at its next scheduled meeting and on occasion request to view works in person. All work presented to the committee in person should be exhibition ready. If work is accepted, the committee will determine the exhibition timeline and format. The MAC usually exhibits two or more artists at a time, depending on the type of work or theme of the exhibition. The MAC retains a 40% commission on all gallery sales.
