Salons are integral to the founding concept of the Corrales Arts Center.  CAC salons emulate the historic design of the salon,  begun in the 1600's as conversational gatherings in private parlors that focused on music, artistic and literary trends.  Our salons feature artisans of all genre who present insightful and interactive discussions in private homes, studios, and other venues.  Offering six salons annually, the lively camaraderie is enhanced by delicious hors d'oeuvres and assorted beverages!  This member-only benefit is included in a CAC membership.  Please join today to enjoy this unique series! For a copy of the 2019 Salon Schedule click here.

For more information contact Carla Wright at   or 505-269-8385.
