PLATFORM: Winter Salon with Milena Placentile

Come to PLATFORM: centre for photographic + digital arts, for Salon Nights, 
from 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm on Thursday, February 24.

Salon Nights are free evenings of informal critique and feedback where members can bring in their art projects for discussion. 
Whether you wish to present or not, you should come out to add to the dialogue and see what other artists have going on in their studios.
