Monson Museum of Art
Open to Visitors February 5, 2022
The Monson Arts Council will exhibit its newly formed Monson Museum of Art on February 5 between Noon and 5pm at the House of Art, 200 Main Street in Monson. The public is invited to come and enjoy 56 works of art including work by several artists who have passed away, but whose work is remembered and revered — Lew Garland, Virginia Midyette, and Roberta Wilson.
Total collection currently includes 349 works.
In 2011, the Monson Arts Council received a generous gift of art from the Dr. Jean Porwoll estate. This collection has been combined with other art donations received throughout the years and held in storage by the council. Dr. Porwoll served on the Art Show Committee for many years and was a notable collector of work by area artists.
The MAC Art Show/Museum Committee has been refurbishing many of the works of art in the past year, with support from generous funds from area residents donated in memory of Sylvia Pyzocha, and a grant from the Massachusetts Cultural Council. The work is exhibited in four galleries on the first floor of the House of Art. The exhibit is free to all visitors.
Covid 19 guidelines will be followed and wearing masks will be encouraged within the House of Art.
