The Danvers Art Association will be hosting its spring show this weekend and next, April 22, 23, 29 and 30. The Opening Reception will be Friday night, April 21 from 7:30-9:00 p.m. and is free and open to the public.
Members of the DAA have offered their finest work inspired by this beautiful season in many mediums: oils, acrylics, watercolor, pastels, pen & ink, pencil, mixed media, photography and mosaics. The DAA is an artist cooperative, so you will find that prices are much more reasonable than in a commercial gallery!
My entry in the show is titled Connections. It is done in acrylic paint on gallery wrapped canvas, 12″ x 24″ and is wired to be hung on your wall. The painting was inspired by a photograph I took of the Salem/ Beverly Bridge from the Danvers/Beverly side. It was a particularly lovely sky and so quiet and serene looking. But so much activity was happening! Cars and trucks crossed back and forth on the wide arc of the bridge. Beside it, a straight low bridge carried the Purple Line of the MBTA. Boats go out to sea and back all day under the bridge, and planes fly overhead guided by the red light atop the tower. Way to the right in the painting you can see a peek at the gas tank connected underneath the City with pipes.
Danvers Art Association is housed in a lovely old 1910 2-room brick schoolhouse which was renovated by DAA members and is leased to us by the Town. There is plenty of free parking and has a great location right on Route 62. The address is 105 Elliott Street, Danvers, MA 01923.
