Formed in 2011, photographer Michael Johnson has hosted the Photographers Salon at Featherstone on Tuesday evenings during the summer months. Photographers and art enthusiasts gather in the Francine Kelly Gallery, and each week, a featured artist presents their body of work and discusses their creative process and inspiration. Refreshments, discussion and networking follow each presentation. The Photographers Salon meets Tuesdays early July though mid-August at 7:00 pm and is free and open to the public.
2021 marks our 10+1 season of the Photographers Salon! This summer we will celebrate the 10th season of the Photographers Salon (2020 season was cancelled due to the pandemic, therefore we will celebrate our 10+1 anniversary)! Michael Johnson is compiling a group of presenters for this anniversary season and we are looking forward to meeting once again on Tuesday nights to see beautiful images and hear the stories behind them.
