Orange County artists’ salon to be held in February

The next Artists’ Salon—sponsored by the Orange County Arts Commission—will be held Friday, Feb. 3, from 6:30 to 9 p.m. in the West End Theatre at The ArtsCenter in Carrboro. Light refreshments will be served. Salons are free for artists of all kinds—performing, visual, literary, whatever. Come to meet, network and build a better arts environment for all area artists.
The topic for February will be “Shoebox Accounting.” Guest presenter will be Alex Lehmann, CPA, tax manager at McMillan, Pate & Company L.L.P. There will be time for lots of questions and answers.
The purpose of the salon is to bring together artists of all disciplines in a casual setting to share ideas, concerns and information. The Orange County Arts Commission works to not only bring the artistic community together but to facilitate closer ties between artists and the general community. One of the goals of the Orange County Arts Commission is to better serve the needs of artists. Artists often work in isolation, and salons can serve as a place to get feedback from peers as well as to share all of the problems and pleasures of being an artist with kindred spirits.
The Orange County Arts Commission thanks The ArtsCenter for allowing it to use the space for this series.
Those planning to attend should RSVP to the Orange County Arts Commission at (919) 968-2011 or email at
