The Heeschen Gallery is our flexible, venue space that regularly showcases exhibitions for emerging and established artists, and it serves as an educational opportunity for the community to learn about different art forms.  Ceiling track lighting and white walls combine to create an artistic ambience for the viewer.

Our gallery schedule includes eight shows that provide a rich visual experience in many different art forms.  MCA sponsors the October Evenings Juried Exhibit and the Regional Juried Photo Show which provide award monies to the artists.  Both shows are open to artists that reside within 250 miles of Meadville.  We also sponsor the Annual Members’ Exhibit that highlights the creative endeavors of the members of MCA.  In March, in celebration of Youth Art Month, local students in Crawford County display their work in the gallery.

The public is invited to each opening reception to promote each new exhibit. MCA provides the opportunity for groups of individuals, along with children, to tour the Heeschen Gallery.  Call the MCA office at (814) 336-5051 to schedule a tour.
