It’s official! We have re-opened to the public, with added safety measures…
The visual art exhibition ‘Memories from Mars’ by Lucio Dubini which originally opened on 5 March 2020 at our Art Galleries, was closed down a few days after launching, due to the then emerging coronavirus. The exhibition has now re-opened and will remain open to visitors until 16 September 2020. Viewers who had planned to visit the exhibition but hadn’t managed to do so in March, can now see the colourful art show while respecting new social distancing measures.
When visiting, the following Safety Measures will apply:
1. Visitors will be obliged to wear a mask inside the premises
2. MSA personnel will check visitors’ temperatures before being allowed to proceed into the Palazzo
3. The personnel will be advising visitors to use hand sanitizers upon arrival
4. Personnel at the front desk will take visitors’ contact details
5. No gatherings will be allowed inside the building
6. Visitors will be obliged to respect the social distancing instructions.

Re-opening of Memories from Mars – Exhibition by Lucio Dubini
See you at Palazzo de La Salle!
Il-Malta Society of Arts tixtieq tagħti l-kondoljanzi lill-familja u l-ħbieb ta’ Damian McKay li ħalla din id-dinja ftit tal-jiem ilu. Damian kien il-kustodju tal-MSA bejn l-2005 u l-2015, u s-Soċjetà tixtieq tagħtih l-aħħar tislima.
The Malta Society of Arts would like to send condolences to the family and friends of Dame Marie Therese Vassallo, who passed away yesterday. Marie Therese was active at the MSA through the various events she organised at our Palazzo de La Salle over the years. She was the much-loved tutor of many of our music students, who she guided for their exams with the London College of Music, of whom the MSA is the sole representative in Malta.
Dame Marie Therese Vassallo started singing and playing the guitar, piano and violin at a young age. Vassallo was a dedicated singer (mezzo-soprano), vocal tutor and musical director with many years of experience in the music industry.
In 1987 she established the Choir of Marie Therese Vassallo Voice Studio, when she started building the foundations of her solid reputation in the musical field both in Malta and abroad. She travelled and performed in a range of countries all over the world including France, Wales, the United Kingdom and more. She took part in Sables D’Olonnes in France, Wales, London, Havant and Portsmouth. Her repertoire includes a range of styles including opera, standard, modern, folk, sacred music and musical theatre.
Dame Marie Therese Vassallo has mastered singing in a range of languages including Maltese, English, Russian, German, Italian and French. Her choir later on became the resident choir at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Parish Church in Balluta. During her extensive career in the music industry, Dame Marie Therese Vassallo was awarded two scholarships at the Academie Internationale de Formation Musicale, where she was awarded a number of diplomas and invited to give a variety of recitals in public. Later on she went on to study at the London College of Music where she was awarded a diploma and a licentiate.
Throughout her career, Vassallo won several international singing competitions including the Festival Del Grappolo D’Oro, Vulcano D’Oro, Festival Della Canzone Mediterranea and more. She also helped fund the Ghaqda Kantanti Lirici Maltin and had been its president since 1990.
The Malta Society of Arts has been trying to keep in touch with the public throughout the pandemic and its online initiatives have been featured on various newspapers.
The Malta Independent on Sunday of 2 August 2020 featured an article about ‘Artsing About’, the initiative where the Society asked artists who had exhibited at MSA in the past to share artistic and personal anecdotes related to lockdown. You can read the article below and all the individual Facebook posts here.
In another initiative, we posted a series of Facebook posts called ‘Reminiscing Perceptions’, sharing pictures of works which had been exhibited during MSA’s past two Members’ Exhibitions called ‘Perception’ and ‘Perception: postscripts’.
MaltaToday published a feature on Sunday 12 July 2020 regarding this revival of artistic works by MSA Members online during the pandemic.
And finally, a feature about our MSA Committee Vice President Roderick Camilleri was published on the Malta Independent on Sunday of 19 July 2020. The article, penned by Marika Azzopardi, talks about the works and career of Roderick Camilleri as a young artist and curator.

The local music scene is in sorrow for the loss of Mrs Doris Amodio Chircop. Mrs Amodio Chircop guided hundreds of candidates for the London College of Music (LCM) Diploma examinations held at the Malta Society of Arts. Along the years she remained a great supporter of the MSA’s musical events.
Condolences to her family. May she now rest in peace.
