Member Showcase 11/8 – 12/15/2019

Salem Arts Association is excited to close our 2019 exhibition schedule with a showcase of member artwork. All current Salem Arts members were invited to bring in our best work to show the community what we have to offer in all of our diverse styles and artists disciplines.

I have 5 entries in the show:

All Year Long, acrylic, 14″ x 30″ framed. This painting was inspired by a Chinese panel I saw at the Peabody Essex Museum. I tried to replicate the metallic background with copper, gold and bronze acrylic paint.

November, Salem; acrylic, 16″x20″. This painting is the view of my neighbors’ houses and leafless trees out my kitchen window a couple of years ago. The yellow house is now repainted gray, and the white house’s roof is now rust with solar panels!

Essex Marsh, acrylic, 4″ x 12″. This painting is a tiny part of a larger painting I did of Cox Marsh in Essex, on location.

(Shown) Salem Trolley 1910, acrylic, 9″ x 12″. This painting is one of the illustrations I did for In the Middle written by Virginia Frazier. I remember riding of these growing up (not in Salem) and the driver would have to stop the trolley to get out and rehook the car to the cable when we went over some bumps in the road.

The Swing, acrylic, 8″ x 8″. I know the rubber swings in kids’ parks are safer, but I still miss the comfort of the old wooden swings they had when I was a little girl. You could swing on these all afternoon.

The opening reception is on Friday, November 8, 2019 from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. Music! Refreshments! And, of course, lots of art.
