Pop Up Studio: The Artist's Palette

Discover the feeling of falling in love with the painted surface through these guided activities. Standing at an artist’s easel with a palette of colors, you’re invited to join in the fun of mixing pigments to transform them into gold fringe, satin, feathers and clouds. The PMA’s Assistant Director for Family and Studio Learning will be available to offer suggestions and encouragement for those who would like it.

#ThirdThursPMA

It’s date night at the PMA! Local Flames is hosting a mixer in the McLellan House, with jazz by Michael Beling and a wine tasting. This rare opportunity to enjoy spirits and music in a beautiful, historical setting is the perfect place to meet a special someone (or bring your special someone!).

#ThirdThursPMA

Bring the kids for a family-friendly evening of music and theater! Students and faculty from 317 Main, a community music center in Yarmouth, will perform, and Naked Shakespeare will stage theatrical scenes in the galleries.

Or leave the kids and home and enjoy a scary movie (Dead of Night) in the Bernard Osher Foundation Auditorium!

Naked Shakespeare

In celebration of the Treasures of British Art 1400-2000: The Berger Collection, Acorn Productions of Westbrook will present Naked Shakespeare in the PMA. Speaking in the tradition of the Bard, these performances are produced in non-traditional venues without sets, lights, and costumes, allowing the audience's imagination to take center stage.
