5482 Salon

A monthly gathering to discuss a variety of issues ranging from art to politics to current events… to inspire people to reveal their inner passions and quirky interests… to stimulate conversation and debate.

You are invited to become a member of the 5482 salon, a monthly gathering of creative acquaintances from Wrightwood and surrounding communities. Each month a member of the salon will present a topic for education, discussion, and debate to be conducted in a spirit of inquiry without contentious dispute. Members need not be experts or know a lot about topics to participate—instead simply see understanding and willingly join in discussion. Questions are to be encouraged.

The 5482 Salon meets on the first Monday of every month, 7:00–9:00 pm, 5482 Easter Drive.

Children in Need of Hope: an exhibition of documentary portraits


Wrightwood Arts presents “Children in Need of Hope,” an exhibition of documentary portraits by freelance documentary photographer Rick Albertson. The one-day exhibition includes an opening reception and book signing at 2:00 pm, May 26th.

The black and white photographs of children needing hope were taken by Rick while on assignment for non-profit organizations in Asia, Africa, Central and North America. Each photograph will be accompanied by a brief written description providing the often heart-rending stories of the children pictured.

The exhibition is open to the public at 5482 Easter Drive, Wrightwood, CA.. Photographic prints will be available for sale, as well as Rick’s book Documentary Portraits, a retrospective of his career, and Alone, a 60-page zine portfolio of images expressing his feelings of being alone after the passing of his wife..
