For the past several years, Little Patuxent Review has partnered with the Columbia Art Center to present a free Salon Series featuring a broad range of local artists, writers, musicians, crafts-folk and other specialists.
Speakers discuss aspects of their work and their process as artists developing material. Often they hold workshops or demonstrations, engaging the audience to participate and gain greater insight into the experience.
Salon Series events are held monthly at 7:00 PM on Mondays from September through May at the Columbia Art Center, located at 6100 Foreland Garth in the village of Long Reach in Columbia, Maryland.
Below is a list of upcoming Salon Series events:
