In the spirit of the days when a Kodachrome slide projector was the focal point for family gatherings, SlideNight features projected work by a handful of accomplished artists each sharing new or in-process artwork. SlideNight is a curated salon where artists and the community join together for an exciting evening to share lens-based artwork. Participating SlideNight artists include Annie Briard, Rydel Cerezo, Dawna Mueller, Jake Kimble, Dina Goldstein.
