Salon Series

Salon Series Information

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.

Salon Series events are held monthly at 7:00 PM September through May at the Columbia Art Center, located at 6100 Foreland Garth in the village of Long Reach in Columbia, Maryland.

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.

Register by calling 410-730-0075 or purchase your ticket at the event.
