Marsden Arts Group

The Marsden Arts Group (MAG) is a group of professional and emerging artists who meet once a month at M16 Artspace, Griffith in Canberra to share our 'work-in-progress'. The Marsden Arts Group exhibit at least once a year.

I established the group in 2003 as a means of creating a supportive environment for artist's to enter the art world and to learn the 'Business of Art'. In 2009 MAG was awarded the ACT Chief Ministers Inclusion Awards for the Arts.

We offer each other support in our creative endeavour, setting a monthly topic for inspiration which can be followed, or not, as we choose. It is a forum for artistic discussion and exchange of arts business information, competitions and up-coming events. Some of the more established and experienced artists in the group mentor those who are just starting out.

MAG aims to have members who work in a variety of media and subjects, this creates a dynamic and exciting environment which allows us to create new and exciting artworks to put on public view.
