Sadie Bliss, MCA & SMC Executive Director, 2012-2022

Support An Artist With The Bliss Fund!

Contributions of any amount play a vital role in broadening access and ensuring that our programs are enriched by the presence of artists from diverse backgrounds and perspectives.

The Bliss Fund is a dedicated resource for artist scholarships extended by the Maine Crafts Association to meritable artists. Established in 2022, a visionary contributor sought to create a fund that would provide opportunities for artists to engage in the Haystack Weekend Workshop or other MCA programs without financial barriers.

The initial donation that set the foundation for The Bliss Fund was made in honor and appreciation of former MCA Executive Director, Sadie Bliss. The fund’s name, symbolic of joy and contentment, not only acknowledges Sadie’s dedication but also reflects the bliss it brings each time we can offer financial support to an artist.

The Maine Crafts Association is a 501(c)(3) organization and your gift is tax deductible to the full extent of the law.
