First Monday of the Month, 6 p.m. – 8 p.m.

We will be offering monthly artist gatherings at the Bonifas on the first Monday of the month at 6 until 8 p.m. These gatherings will be for artists to get together and talk about what they are working on currently. Get inspiration and meet like-minded people that just want to talk about what they love to do.
