Spring into Art!
RiverArts’ Salon Sundays return April – July to offer virtual tours of Rivertowns artists’ studios. Join us for an inside view of local artists’ studios led by the artists themselves. An exciting opportunity to gain insights into the creative process, learn about techniques in a variety of media and interact with the artists via Instagram Live.
Salon Sundays are inspired by the French salons founded in the 18th century as a means for new and emerging artists to gather and show their works in large numbers. Artists filled the walls, floor to ceiling, exhibiting anything and everything for the public and each other. Salons drew intellectuals, writers, poets, sculptors, painters, printmakers, supporters, and those interested in engaging with the creative community.
Sundays at 3pm
April 11, May 2, May 16, June 13, June 27, July 11

“We strongly encourage anyone attending a Salon Sunday to come with their curiosity peaked, ask questions, and learn who’s who in the local art community. It’s powerful to interact with artists in their space. We’re hoping this event will increase community involvement and provide a chance to meet one-on-one with area artists and experience art up close.” Jeff Dietz, Producer, Salon Sundays
