February Artists’ Salon

February 20th, 2020

Please join us February 20th at Axis Gallery from 5:30-7 pm for the Artists’ Salon, 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, who acts as a moderator. Verge provides refreshments but everyone is welcomed to bring snacks.

Our topics are chosen democratically during the end of the session, attendees can bring their own materials and ideas in relationship to the topic or read our shared reference materials prior to discussion. In the month of October we are discussing the topic of Art Accounting (Budgeting and running your art practice as a business)
