The Artist Salon series creates informal social gatherings in which a rotating selection of artists share brief presentations with the public and their artistic peers. 

Red Poppy presents the extraordinary Rupa Marya. "She's a doctor/rock star." See the video on Current TV.


Red Poppy presents The Songstress Salon featuring Maria Morrell, Stina Da Silva, and Maria Machetes.

Maria Morrellis an artist who writes her songs with an empathic flair for life's joys and pains. Her folk and soul influenced music gives way for an unpretentious, reminiscent experience.

Stina da Silva is a soulful songstress whose lyrics and melodies are passionate and sometimes quirky. She incorporates a variety of styles into her music but her main influence is rooted in blues and folk.

Maria Machetes is a singer songwriter with music rooted in Latin American traditions addressing everything form poetry to politics. She will be performing traditional boleros from Puerto Rico with special guest Maria Medina.


Join us again this fall when the Artist Fellows premiere their projects, including an original production by Campo Santo, directed by Sean San José; FAM BAM, a new documentary on the black family by Kevin Epps; and performances and paintings by Todd T. Brown. 

The studio is open on Saturdays and Sundays, 1–5 p.m. View works-in-progress from Inheritance: an exhibition of mixed-media works by Todd T. Brown with an opening reception on September 16 and artist talk on September 23.
