Becoming Exhibit

From the opening reception August 4 until September 9, the Salem Arts Association will feature an exhibit that features artwork inspired by artists’ transformative journeys and acts of becoming.

My drawing juried into the show is titled Celtic Peacocks, pen and colored pencil, 14″ x 18″ matted and framed. It is done in the style of the Book of Kells, and consists of intricate, meticulous knots and bright colors reminiscent of the work done by ancient Irish monks in their stone towers.

The exhibit is open to artists from the community as well as members of the Salem Arts Association. The reception will be held on Friday, August 4 from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. at Salem Arts Association Gallery right beside historic Pickering Wharf on 159 Derby Street, Salem, MA. #SalemArts The reception will include live music by Brian Cogger performing his original compositions, refreshments, and is free and open to the public.

Regular gallery hours are noon until 6:00 p.m. every Saturday and Sunday. And when you are visiting our gallery exhibits, do not forget to check out the Gallery Shop on the first floor. It is full of original work by members: jewelry, paintings, clothing, fiber art, ceramics, glass, prints, and more — perfect for gifts, or treat yourself!
