Artists of all disciplines, come and share a new work or a work-in-progress at the re-launch of the Arts Salon in an inspiring new space, thanks to a partnership between SSTCi and AHCMC.

Format: The salon will feature a performance-oriented show-and-tell format, a kind of “open mic” for artists of all disciplines. Participants are encouraged to prepare a five-minute piece to share: a new song, the unveiling of a new painting, a scene to read from a play-in-progress, etc. After the performances, what follows is discussion and engagement.
Host: The host is award-winning author and songwriter Mary Amato. The program manager is Cynthia Farrell Johnson, a local visual artist.
Cost: The SSTCi Arts Salon is free and open to the public.
Sponsors: The salon is sponsored and presented by The Silver Spring Town Center, Inc (SSTCi) with the support of the Arts and Humanities Council of Montgomery County (AHCMC). AHCMC is an independent nonprofit serving as Montgomery County’s designated local arts agency.
