Introducing Fort Worth Artist’s Salon

As many of you know, we’ve had a very successful poetry night that occurs every third Sunday of the month at the library at 7. We are trying something new with this event and would like to extend the invite to writers and artists of all kinds.

There will be a theme for every meeting, and the artists will choose the theme at the previous month’s meeting! The goal: create, share, talk!

Join us Sunday, November 20th at 7pm.  The theme is: Ode to Strangers.

For continued updates about the event, please check out our Facebook Event!
