APPLE VALLEY – Visual, performing, and literary artists are invited to All Points Artist Salon, October 26, for an evening of expression and dialogue. The Arts Connection gathering, at D.R.E.A.M Lounge, aims to foster conversation and community-building among the High Desert’s creative industry.
“Historically, salons have been touchstone gatherings where artists can develop mutually beneficial professional relationships,” said Arts Connection Regional Program Director T. Faye Griffin. “Cities with thriving artist communities often enjoy stimulated creative and economic vitality.”
Arts Connection, a non-profit, is the designated arts council of San Bernardino County. The council provides support, promotion, education, and advocacy for the arts to enrich the lives of artists and arts organizations.
Griffin is the first Arts Connection Regional Program Director for the High Desert.
“While Arts Connection has served the county for many years there has not been a dedicated representative in our region,” said Griffin. “I believe the first step to elevating arts and culture in the region is to create a safe and stimulating environment for us to get to know and support one another.”
The plan for All Points Artist Salon is to become a “moveable feast” with gatherings taking place regularly throughout the High Desert. Arts Connection hopes to launch several programs in the coming months.
As for this first event, artists will have an opportunity to not only receive and give support, but also share ideas and resources.
“Magic happens when creatives connect for conversation and community,” said Griffin.
