Salons2020 Exhibition Video

Beginning in January, three groups of interested Pro Arts members met once a month to share their ideas and work for feedback and inspiration. Each group was assigned a curator who met with them twice to offer another point of view and their suggestions. This year’s program was particularly challenging due to the pandemic forcing most of the meetings to Zoom. Nevertheless, the groups persisted and this exhibition is a culmination of our hard work.
