When I started getting more involved with photography, a friend of mine told me to join the Mid-Missouri Fine Arts Society (MMFAS). I entered some pieces in one of their exhibits at the Train Depot Gallery, and I got to know some of the members. They seemed to be a nice crowd, so I joined. Now I have a lot of wonderful friends, and the shared love for the arts keeps us together.
The Mid-Missouri Fine Arts Society (MMFAS) began in 1974 to promote and contribute to to the interest in fine arts. Everybody can join the club, members are active artists and art enthusiasts. The meetings are held on the second Monday of every month at the Scenic Regional Library in Union, MO from 7 to 9 pm. We discuss current affairs, possible venues for future exhibitions, and we usually have a visiting artist who talks about their work or does a demonstration. And since pictures speak louder than words, here are some photos from our first 2012 meeting.
The next MMFAS show is “Still Life: Food For Thought” from January 21 until March 17 at the Train Depot Gallery on 301 West Front Street. The show will not be judged and it is for members only.

Support your local artists, because life without art is like the Earth without the Sun!
