Artists’ Salon

3rd Thursdays 5:30-7pm

The Artist’s Salon is a group open to all artists and art enthusiasts where we discuss one or various themes, artists, or topics in contemporary art. It takes place every third Thursday of the month at Axis Gallery between 5:30 and 7pm. It is facilitated by Verge Center for the Arts Education Manager. Verge provides refreshments but everyone is welcomed to bring snacks.
