F.A.Q.

HOW DO I GET INVITED?

The Salon is private and invite only. But I encourage you to drop us a line on the contact page and invite the curators over for a studio visit/meet us for coffee/schedule a phone call to talk about your ideas. We Love meeting new people! Just find a way to draw us in and court us a little.

DO I HAVE TO PAY TO GET IN?

Absolutely not, you are a guest in this space. The salon accepts anonymous donations through Venmo and Patreon, but no entrance fee is ever required. These donations will pay for speaking fees, transportation for presenters, food and wine, subsidize the artist residency, and all basic administration costs.

WHAT IF I HAVE A REALLY GOOD IDEA I'D LIKE TO PRESENT BUT I'M A COMPLETE STRANGER?

Amazing! We'd love to hear from you. Fill out the contact form on the home page, or email directly and we'll get back to you.  We post regularly on NYFA.org if we're looking for presentations on specific themes, but always happy to hear of new ideas! 

I'M INTERESTED IN STUDIO SPACE, BUT THEY ARE ALL LABELED UNAVAILABLE.

We have the studios on a 6-month cycle and they become available frequently. Drop us a line in the contact form, or email us directly here, and can put you on a waiting list. 

IS THERE A DRESS CODE?

No, but frills are always encouraged.

WILL THERE BE SNACKS?

Always. We look forward to nourishing you in more ways than one.

Usually some wine will be served. Feel free to BYOB and be prepared to share!
