Please join us at the gallery reception on Friday April 13 from 5:00 to 8:00 PM, We will present awards at 6:00
We're proud to announce “Exhibition Exhibition”, an artistic exploration of personal expression through fashion and presentation that acts as accompaniment to the Salem Arts Festival’s Spring Fashion Show.
We're also featuring live music performed by Molly Pinto Madigan at the reception.
Hailed for her angelic voice and haunting compositions, Molly Pinto Madigan won first place in WUMB's Boston Folk Festival Songwriting Contest and was named "Artist of the Year" at Salem State University, her alma mater. Since her debut as the lead singer for the teen bluegrass band Jaded Mandolin, Madigan has submerged herself in the dark, luscious world of ballads, drawn to their magic, and her original songs echo with the whisperings of the American and European traditional music.

En Plein Air at The House of the Seven Gables
May 14 through May 29
We invite our members to set up on the grounds during the peak season of the Spring flowering at the Gables; to be inspired, and reflect that inspiration in their paintings.
Plein Air inspiration is a way we can interact with all the elements, we as artists will represent Light and Air.
We will also be working among the visitors from all over the world which lends a lot of spontaneity to the authentic Plein Air experience.
Thursday May 31 6-8 PM
At the residency's end, we will have a one night to exhibit the works of this year's residency at the House of the Seven Gables and then we will bring the exhibit to the Salem Arts Association Gallery to be available for viewing during the Salem Arts Festival and through the month of June.
