Sandra’s Salon – Launch & Meet the Artist
‘Sandra’s Salons’ sees Sandra Higgins (TDR’s resident art curator) host talks by exhibiting artists, as well as poets, curators and authors, with film nights and a regular guide to collecting art.
In the well-known tradition of private salons, audience participation and lively discussion are encouraged, with themed fancy dress challenges every few months as a fun way to fuel the sense of comradery
Tonight is the exciting launch of this new collaboration between Sandra and The Drawing Rooms, and for our first get-together we welcome artist Roy Osborne for an artist talk
