Who is MAGS? 

As a 501(c)(3) arts organization, the Manassas Art Guild (MAGS) is promoting a diversity of arts in Manassas and Northern Virginia area. Our goals are implemented with the creative and dedicated efforts of  a group of local artists assembled to support the growth of each other’s art forms.  Integration with the community is accomplished through these means:

Educating, exhibiting, and providing arts events, to connect with the Manassas community. Demonstrating the vital link between people, their sense of well-being, and the arts. Inspiring all citizens to become responsible caretakers of the arts. Celebrating the MAGS broad range of knowledge and skills through the gift of teaching the arts to our societal members. Leading this effort by sharing the MAGS unique body of diverse and talented artists with others in the community.
