Established in 2014 by a group of friends, Morecambe Artist Colony (MAC for short) is a not-for-profit group of local artists and creatives, passionate about using art for the regeneration of our town by instigating, delivering and supporting curated high-quality art-led exhibitions and projects in existing, new and under-utilised spaces in Morecambe.
We currently curate exhibitions in The Hothouse, in Morecambe’s West End, and in The Stone Jetty Cafe in Central Morecambe. We have previously exhibited in Morecambe Library and curated the 20th Century Art Trail – 32 artists in 15 unexpected venues in Morecambe including Hart’s Ice Cream Parlour, Brucciani’s, Oasis amusement arcade, Rita’s Cafe, The Old Pier Bookshop and The Temperance Club – Gentleman’s Hairdressers for Deco Publique, as a part of Vintage By The Sea 2016. We are currently campaigning to site a Time & Tide Bell in Morecambe. To learn more about this visit the Time & Tide Bell page.
The group is run by a core committee of around 12 members and has a wider membership of around 50 artists/creatives.
