2021-22 -- A YEAR OF FASCINATING EVENTS AWAITS AMA MEMBERS
We deeply appreciate our members and we are planning a fantastic art-centered year starting in Summer 2021 and continuing through Spring 2022. Here are some of the events we have lined up already!
European Splendors, organized by the Columbia Museum of Art, South Carolina, with support from the Samuel H. Kress Foundation, New York, opens in the Haley Gallery. This stunning exhibition includes breathtaking paintings from the Renaissance and Baroque periods. Albany Museum of Art members are invited to attend the special members-only opening reception on Thursday, August 26.
You also will get the chance to meet artists from AMA exhibitions.
Join us at 11 a.m. on Saturday, September 18 for an AMA Member Meet-Up at the High Museum in Atlanta, where you will get a guided tour of the Calder-Picasso exhibition organized by the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. After viewing the marvelous artworks by Pablo Picasso and Alexander Calder, two of the foremost 20th century artists, you can enjoy four other exhibitions at the High, plus the permanent collection. It’s free for Supporting level members and up! Why not make it a weekend? Book a room at the charming Artmore Hotel, just a few steps from the High.

Combine art with music on Saturday, October 2. AMA members will get special ticket pricings for the ASO’s evening concert of Italian symphonic music, inspired by the AMA's European Splendors exhibition, at Albany State University West Campus. Then, it’s just a short walk or a quick drive next door to the AMA for the post-concert reception for AMA and ASO members.
On Thursday, November 4 Collector's Circle members will be treated to European Splendor in the form of an elegant dinner at the AMA. The Collector’s Circle Dinner will feature a representative of the Columbia Museum of Art.
On Saturday, November 13, AMA ChalkFest returns to Pine Avenue, near the future home of the AMA. We’ll have professional and amateur chalk artists, live music, libation stations and much more! Members get free admission and discounts on the VIP Experience.
JANUARY & FEBRUARY
After the busy holidays, we're showering our members with love! During January and February, members will be automatically entered into raffles for gifts, and one lucky winner will win Art Ball 2022 tickets! Drawings will be held every Monday, and announced on AMA social media.
AMA Executive Director Dr. Andrew J. Wulf will open his home for the annual Patrons Party. More information on this event for members at the Patron level and up will be available as the event nears.
Yes, there’s more. We’re working on the details now for other great events, discounts and special members-only perks that will pop up throughout the year. To be part of what is shaping up to be an “artastic” year, join or renew your AMA membership today!
