The Artist Alley gallery program is a partnership between the City of Monrovia Community Services Department and Monrovia Association of Fine Arts. Artist Alley will feature the work of juried MAFA member artists on display and for sale on a three-month rotating installation basis. All the new show artist receptions will feature wine, refreshments, and live music.

Interested buyers can purchase art (via check only) at the front desk of the Community Center. Purchased items will be tagged as sold and the proud new owners may take the art home at the end of the current three-month show. MAFA will receive these proceeds and pay the artists whose work is sold, minus a modest 20% commission. If you are interested in displaying and selling your work for three months at a time in this gallery, you must be an active MAFA Artist Member (dues paid up until at least the end of your three-month installation) and you must sign the Gallery Agreement Form (which is available for download at
