We are a community of artists of all disciplines. We aim to provide mutual support, share information, and present a collective voice for the arts in Arlington, MA. To find out more, contact organizer Lidia Kenig-Scher at artlinksarlington1@gmail.com or visit us on Facebook.
We meet on the 1st Wednesday of the month, noon – 2:30pm in even months, and 6:30 – 9pm in odd months. Our meetings usually take place at the Arlington Center for the Arts (20 Academy St, 3rd floor), and begin with 30 minutes for networking around a bagged meal, if desired, followed by a presentation or a show-and-tell, and then a brief business meeting.
