Maldon Art Club

Maldon Art Club (MAC) is a well established adult art group, providing a year long programme of art activities in Maldon.
MAC meet weekly on Tuesdays, from September to May at the Upper Plume School Dining Hall in Fambridge Road, Maldon, followed by an outdoor summer programme.

In addition to our regular meetings where members choose their own work and medium, an annual  programme of events is arranged. The events include visiting galleries and exhibitions, inviting professional artists to demonstrate their work or technique, holding outdoor meetings and exhibiting club member’s work.  The group also enjoys locally held social events.

Maldon Art Club has been active in the cultural life of Maldon since 1942. It started as one of the groups that were formed to support and continue cultural activities in towns and cities in what was the worst year of the war for people in this country. In addition to art, drama, choral and orchestral music groups were formed and after the war a camera club was added.
Money was provided by the Maldon Educational Settlement that was associated with the Essex Educational Committee. In the Moot Hall archives we found a financial statement from 1956 which records the Art Club as having an income of £1.11s.6d and the Art Club class 7 Guineas.

Like so many organizations, this Club owes its existence to the enthusiasm and commitment of its members.Maldon Art Club
