Art in Bloom features inventive floral arrangements on display in the  galleries for two to three days in June. The arrangements, created by members of the Marion Garden Group and other local designers, are inspired by artworks in the MAC exhibition currently on view. Participants, working individually or in pairs, create floral interpretations of a specific piece of their choosing. The MAC also offers various flower-related workshops during Art in Bloom, such as floral arranging or watercolor painting.  Contact the MAC to find out more!

The MAC's Online Art Auction!
July 28-July 31, 2021
Preview Reception: Wednesday July 28, 5:30-7:00pm

The Marion Art Center hosted its first Online Art Auction in 2020, in lieu of its annual summer fundraiser, Cocktails by the Sea. Thanks to our sponsors, donors, participants, and our fabulous auction committee, we were able to reach our fund raising goal during an unprecedented year.

We're excited to bring back this unique event in 2021. The MAC is currently collecting art donations. Do you have a piece of art or special item you no longer use or have room for? We're accepting the following items in good condition: paintings, prints, art objects, unique or handmade items, ceramic, glass, wood, jewelry, antiques, and more. If you have anything you'd like to contribute, please contact the MAC at 508-748-1266, or email [email protected] with "Art Auction" in the subject line. We'll even arrange no-contact drop off, or we can pick up your donations!

Stay tuned for more details!
