Due to the popularity of the Irish American Writers and Artists’ Salons, which are held the first Tuesday of each month at the Thalia Café at Symphony Space and West 95th Street, we are adding an additional venue to showcase that talent of IAW&A members.

On Tuesday, November 15 an additional IAW&A’s Salon will be coming to The Cell Theatre, located at 338 West 23rd Street.  The Cell a “Twenty First Century Salon, is a place where artists can “mine the mind, pierce the heart, and awaken the soul…a place for artists to incubate and present new work.” It is exactly that spirit that the IAW&A’s Salon has attempted to capture and why we are happy to add the “Salon at The Cel”l to our monthly schedule along with the “First Tuesday Thalia Salon.”

The IAW&A Salon, the brainchild of Malachy McCourt, allows IAW&A members the opportunity to present in the medium of their choice. Do you have a recently published book you’d like to read from? Working on a new song you’d like to try out in front of an audience? Would you like to work out a scene from a play you’ve written, tell a story, read a passage from a novel in progress or hone your comedic skills? At an IAW&A Salon you’ll have ten minutes in front of a supportive audience to do just that.

The event is meant to be low-keyed and that’s exactly what it is, a group of artists gathered to support one another in a relaxed and convivial atmosphere.

While you must be a member to present, the proceedings are free and open to all.
