The Maryland Federation of Art (MFA) is a nonprofit membership organization of artists and art patrons. MFA’s mission is to provide exhibit and professional development opportunities for artists and to provide arts education and outreach opportunities for all Maryland citizens. The MFA was established in 1963 by US Navy Commander Charles Holley, Mrs. Margaret Farmer, and a group of dedicated Annapolis-area artists interested in developing professional exhibit opportunities for Maryland’s creative community. As a result of their dedication, the Circle Gallery was founded in Annapolis, Maryland, and continues more than 50 years later as the oldest operating artist gallery in Maryland.
