Art and Photo Salons

Art Salons are an opportunity for stimulating discussions about contemporary art themes, including conceptual, cultural, socio/political, environmental, race and gender-focused and aesthetic practices, the materials and techniques used to convey these ideas, and how they fit into the world of contemporary conceptual art. We also explore the practical side of being an artist, professional development, and the sharing of resources.

All salons are $10 payable at the door and meet in the Armory Library. Come join in the lively discussions!
