What is The ArtSalon?
The ArtSalon is a dynamic social evening of engaging presentations by established and emerging artists in the Pioneer Valley. The ArtSalon provides an opportunity for artists and designers of all mediums to present their work and ideas in a format called Pecha Kucha (pronounced peh-chak-cha) of 20 slides x 20 seconds each. Come meet and join the artists, creators, critics, and collectors in a friendly, social gathering of conversations about the arts in our community. At each Salon, four artists from the Pioneer Valley will present a slideshow of their work. Want to learn more? Email firstname.lastname@example.org
