Members Showcase: Apr. 6-20, 2019

The Salem Arts Association will present their Member Showcase exhibition at Old Town Hall, Salem MA. The opening reception will be held on Friday, April 5 from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. and is free and open to the public. The guest juror is Kate Luchini, Staff Planner for Art and Culture at City of Salem.

I have five entries in the show. Boston Skyline, acrylic,  11”x14”, shows a view of Boston that I could see when I was trapped in traffic one frustrating morning — lemons to lemonade. Devereaux Morning, acrylic, 12”x24”, is a misty view I painted on location on a cold July morning, as part of the Marblehead Festival of Arts when artists paint local scenes all over town. The Silversmith, watercolor, 16”x20”, in a lovely antique frame. Knowles Landing, acrylic, 16” x 20”, was painted on location at Stubby Knowles Landing in West Gloucester on an idyllic summer afternoon. More Power, mixed media, 16”x20” matted and framed was the inspiration for the electric light box I painted at Riley Plaza in downtown Salem.

In addition to the gallery show, Salem Arts Association will be running a shop, chock full of original art, prints of members’ work, jewelry, photography, textile work, etc. — all for sale to art lovers. I will be showing small Celtic style paintings, and matted prints of my other paintings.

The exhibition dates are April 6 to April 20, 2019, and gallery hours are every Saturday and Sunday from noon until 5:00 p.m. Salem Old Town Hall is located at 12 Derby Square, Salem, MA 01970
