Ma Ly is a French self-taught professional painter residing in Fresno, CA. Born in Laos of Hmong descent, Ma lived 32 years in France before settling in Fresno in 2008. He has been a full-time artist since 2010 and teaches art to children and adults at his studio, Ma Ly Atelier.
In addition, Ma is the Artist Liaison at M Street Arts Complex, downtown Fresno, as well as the ArtHop Preparator at Fresno City Hall. Since 2013 he has served as artistic director for the Art of Life® project that pairs cancer survivors with local artists to co-create a piece of art.
In 2016, he received the Horizon Award from the Fresno Arts Council and the Award of Arts from The Foundation @ Fresno County of Education. From 2011-2016 he was an art instructor at Fresno Adult School and at Michaels in Clovis.
The human element is at the core of Ma's work through portraiture and narrative paintings done in a realistic style. He also enjoys painting landscapes, seascapes, and cityscapes. His award-winning paintings have been displayed in several local art venues and some are owned by organizations such as the Fresno County Office of Education, the Fresno Memorial Auditorium, the Betty Rodriguez Regional Library, and the African American Cultural and Historical Museum of the San Joaquin Valley. 

Our new board members this year are:

 We are planning some wonderful changes for ACA this year, doing some things a little differently to reinvigorate our membership. To begin with, more creative meetings, with more interaction between members as we create and share together. We will have new judges who have never judged for ACA before at our shows. Our first show of the year will be in May and will be an Open Show. Our second show will be in October and will be a member’s show. We will be putting a committee together to do a creative fund-raiser this year. Possibly a beautiful calendar showcasing some our member’s beautiful artwork. I hope to see each and every one of you at our January Meeting as we review 2016 and plan some other exciting things for 2017. Come and give us your input, your ideas and your support. Remember ACA dues are due in January. Happy New Year!
