Salem Arts Association is proud to announce “Land and Sea”, an exhibition celebrating New England’s rich maritime history, beautiful coastline, and historic connection to the sea. Artist members will be showing 75 landscapes and seascapes featuring their unique interpretations of beautiful New England.
My submission is Boston Bridges, a 16″ x 20″ acrylic painting of the Zakim and Charlestown Bridges. I liked the contrast of old and new, which is so much a part of Boston’s architecture. The other thing that appealed to me about this scene is the contrast of the natural ocean so close to the modern city.
The opening reception will be held Friday, August 3 from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. It is free and open to the public and light refreshments will be served. The show will run August 3 through September 30 at The Bridge at 211, 211 Bridge St., Salem, MA. Please use the Ash Street entrance.
