Salem Arts Association presents “ReVISION”, an exhibition that asks the artist and viewer to “look at old things in new ways”. How would you ReTHINK, ReDefine, or ReIMAGINE your world. How can we RePURPOSE, ReCYCLE, and ReUSE objects to be seen in a new way. We’re asking artists to push the limits and present work that challenges perceptions or presents a new way of seeing old things, places, and ideas.
