The Salem Arts Association #SalemArts is presenting the Summer Member Showcase at their beautiful seaside galleries. The opening reception will be held on Friday, August 3 from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.
The opening reception will feature live music by musical guest Brian Cogger performing original compositions. There will be refreshments and an opportunity to visit the SAA Gallery Shop stocked with exquisite one-of-a-kind handmade creations by the artists.
My painting in the exhibit is Emerald Woods, acrylic on canvas, 16″ x 20″. This was done en plein air and is a view into the conservation area behind my house. In the early morning, the sun shines through the leaves, making them glow. I had to work fast before the sun rose too high and the light completely changed. The woods are an ever-changing subject for my paintings!
The artists were free to use any medium, and any subject for this exhibit and there is a huge array of different styles.
Salem Arts Association gallery is located at 159 Derby Street and has lovely ocean views of Pickering Wharf. The exhibit will run until September 9.
