Art and History Museums – Maitland (A&H) offers an Artist-in-Action (AIA) program that reflects the spirit of founder André Smith’s Research Studio and the current mission of the institution. This program provides non-residential studio space to an established or emerging artist for the professional practice and research of fine art. This program is an exciting opportunity to interact with A&H’s community of artists and art enthusiasts while working in this uniquely rich and historic environment.


The A&H’s acclaimed Artist-in-Action program takes place at the A&H’s historic Maitland Art Center (originally André Smith’s Research Studio).  In Smith’s day, famous artists were invited to live and work at the Research Studio in the winter months, including luminaries Milton Avery and Ralston Crawford.  In the recent past, a number of very well-known artists occupied the studios in a non-resident capacity, including the late Anita Wooten, Barbara Tiffany, and Ellie Diez-Massaro.
The Artists-in-Action program at the A&H’s Maitland Art Center is partially underwritten by Jeff & June Flowers, Roger & Gloria Pickar, Dave Plotkin and Bill & Joan Randolph.
