ORANGE COUNTY, NC (August 8, 2016) – The next Artists’ Salon, sponsored by the Orange County Arts Commission, will be held on Friday, August 19, 2016.

Artists’ Salons are held from 6:30-9:00 p.m. in the West End Theatre at The ArtsCenter in Carrboro. Light refreshments will be served.

Salons are free, for artists of all kinds – performing, visual, literary, whatever! Come to meet, network and build a better arts environment for all Orange County artists.

The August topic will be "Teaching Artist Laboratory – Two Weeks at the Lincoln Center". Our guest presenter will be Jeannette Brossart, ACE. Jeannette Brossart, professional mosaic artist and teaching artist, will share her experiences from NYC's Lincoln Center Teaching Artist Laboratory 2016.  With over 70 residencies and workshops under her belt, join her for a presentation of tips, advice, ideas, and inspiration for sharing your artistry with others for the approaching school year and beyond. 

The purpose of the salon is to bring together artists of all disciplines in a casual setting to share ideas, concerns and information. The Orange County Arts Commission works to not only bring the artistic community together but to facilitate closer ties between artists and the general community. One of the goals of the Orange County Arts Commission is to better serve the needs of artists. Artists often work in isolation and salons can serve as a place to get feedback from peers as well as to share all of the problems and pleasures of being an artist.

The Orange County Arts Commission would like to thank The ArtsCenter for the use their space for this quarterly series.

If you are an artist and plan to attend, please RSVP to the Orange County Arts Commission at (919) 245-2325 or email us at
