This year we had an incredible response to MAFA’s call out for new associate members with more applications than we have ever received. Due to lockdown restrictions, the application and selection process had to be moved online. A panel made up of MAFA sculptors, printmakers and painters formed a selection committee to shortlist artists. Then a riguous process of assessment looking at each artist’s work and motivations as an artist was undertaken.
We woud like to thank everyone who applied to MAFA. The selection panel were incredibly impressed by the high standard of work this year.
The following artists were selected as associate members Rachel Arif, Eve Bridges, David Youds, Edward Mackenzie, Russell Gregory, Helena Worthington, Stefanie Trow and Sandra Robinson. We’re looking forward to exhibiting with them in the near future. You can see more about them and their artwork by visiting the Art & Artist webpage.
