As part of its commitment to creating a deeply personal experience for the community, the audience, the artist and the collector, C Gallery will begin a new series of Salons in October.

“It is important that our gallery’s initiatives and story provide platforms, supporting events, and environments where the artists, art, community, and audience connect,” said gallery director, Jeffrey Lazos Ferns. “These salons are curated in an intimate, inviting, and safe place where in this new normal and looking post pandemic, we can build community and a program structure where art, ideas and participants engage in a more deep and meaningful way.”

Most Salons will be livestreamed as well as held in-gallery with limited seating and safety guidelines and measures in place.
