Thursday Night Salon featuring 2022 Artist-in-Residence, Kacey Slone! In-Person
The Carnegie Center's 2022 Artist in Residence, Kacey Slone is an Indiana artist using the 200 square-foot Sally Newkirk Gallery in the Carnegie Center as her own personal art studio for 9 weeks during the summer–throughout the duration of the Form, Not Function quilt exhibition. On Thursday July 7th, our fifth ever Thursday Night Salon will feature Kacey's work and an artist talk, live music, snacks, a zine "little library," and other sensory experiences in the spirit of TNS.
Also check out the Form, Not Function exhibit in its final weeks while you're at it!
This is a free, all-ages event.
What is Thursday Night Salon at the Carnegie Center?
Set in the main galleries amidst the art exhibitions, this interactive evening series is intended to foster a sense of community, with a rotating program of conversations, performances, and active art-making.
When do they occur?
Usually once per art exhibition, always on a first Thursday of the month.
