Show your art or music - Machine Artists Circle
The Machine Artists Circle is a selected group of makers who show work at the Machine during our public events, including First Friday, Lark Street Art Beat, our Movie Night, and Special Events. Our Artists Circle allows emerging artists the opportunity to present new work that contributes to the development of their artistic practice, while engaging a larger community of fellow artists. Machine Artists circle applicants are required to apply with a portfolio of existing work for review. Artists Circle benefits include:
• Publication of one selected work in our MACC Annual Review magazine.
• Bulk art supply discounts, and special discount rates for MACC equipment and space rental

Machine Internship Programs
Interns are an integral part of The Machine. With their assistance, The Machine is able to accomplish its goals and realize its mission. Machine interns may receive college credit for working in a small studio/gallery on Lark Street, or excellent resume experience. You'll get experience with daily gallery activities, curating shows, planning and hosting events, marketing and PR, and business management. We also have internships available in digital graphic design, and website design. We have had successful and happy interns from local Universities such as SUNY Albany, with majors including art, and business.
