SLT & MAC Joint Exhibition

A joint exhibition sponsored by the Marion Art Center and the Sippican Lands Trust entitled “Images: The Lands of the Sippican Lands Trust” will open at the Marion Art Center on Friday, October 2. A reception honoring the artists and their guests will be held from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. The Exhibition will run until November 14.

This exhibition will be the second joint exhibition, the first being in 2011. The initial idea came from John Howland, a Director of the Sippican Lands Trust, who came to the Marion Art Center Exhibition Committee with an idea for a joint exhibition. In order to further The Lands Trust initiative to encourage visitation and enjoyment of the properties protected by the Trust, SLT would invite artists to visit the properties and create art depicting the many scenic sites that comprise the Lands Trust’s forests and marshes. The Art Center would then host an exhibition of the resulting works. The only criterion for the art work was that it depict views of a Lands Trust property or a view from Lands Trust property. In January of 2015, a “call for artists” was sent out from the Marion Art Center directing local artists to take a walk on one of the many trails, visit the marshes and forests and be inspired by their beauty. There were no entry fees and the exhibition is non-juried. Trail maps were made available at the Lands Trust offices and at the Marion Art Center. By the September 1, 2015 registration deadline, over 20 artists had registered to participate. All mediums are represented including photography, oil, acrylic, pastel, and watercolor.

The Marion Art Center is located at 80 Pleasant Street, Marion. Gallery Hours: Tuesday through Friday from 1:00 to 5:00 pm and Saturdays from 10:00 am until 2:00 pm. For more information about this upcoming Exhibition, please visit MAC’s website at
