A LETTER FROM OUR PRESIDENT
Dear MAA members,
Thank you, thank you thank you.
Thank you to the members. Thank you to all the volunteers. Thank you to our donors and collectors. Thank you to the board.
I have seen a lot of growth and richness in my time of being a member, board member, and president of MAA, and they happened because of you volunteering, participating in shows, attending educational events and making new art friends. All of your participation has made MAA strong and successful, and it will no doubt continue to be so under my successor, Jennifer Kahn Barlow, (shown in this photo with me at the "Nature of Art" reception).
Previously vice president of programs, Jen is also a food painter who shows her oil paintings throughout the mid-Atlantic region. She grew up in the Boston suburbs and lived in the DC-area home since 1999. Jen and the rest of our 2022-23 Board of Directors officially begin their roles June 1.
Your help to Jen and the Board will be as greatly appreciated as it was during my terms as president and all of the presidents before me. I hope you will join me in contributing to the growth and richness of MAA far into the future.
And if I haven't mentioned it before, thank you!
Alan Rich, President
