NOMA. It’s short for NOrth MArket.

Founded in 2015, NOMA gallery is a co-op fine art gallery which showcases contemporary and traditional art in a variety of mediums, including painting, drawing, photography, printmaking, sculpture, fiber arts, mixed media & jewelry. We represent 22 artists exhibiting in solo, duo and group shows.

The mission of the gallery is to promote excellence in the visual arts in many different disciplines. NOMA represents Maryland artists from Frederick County, Baltimore, Montgomery County, Hagerstown, Thurmont, Union Bridge, Westminster, and Wheaton. Located at 5th & Market Streets in the historic district of Frederick Maryland on the street level of the Griffin Art Center Building, we are part of the “First Saturday” openings. The openings are held throughout the year for the public to meet and speak with artists in a creative social environment. The gallery also hosts artist’s talks, workshops and lectures. The hours are: Friday 4-8pm, Saturday Noon-8pm. Sundays Noon-4pm, or by appointment. Call 240-274-7985 to set up an appointment.
