Salem Arts Show: 3/5-4/2/22

Salem Arts Association is excited to open our 2022 exhibition schedule with a showcase of our member artwork. Our current Salem Arts members are exhibiting their best and newest work showing the community what we have to offer in all of our diverse styles and artistic disciplines.

My entry in this exhibit is Changes, a 4-panel acrylic painting of stylized tree branches with each 12″ wide by 24″ high canvas panel showing one of the four seasons. The total size is 48″ wide by 24″ high. The painting was inspired by the Asian panels at the Peabody Essex Museum and the background is done in many layers of different metallic paints and glazes which gives it a rich and varied look as the light in a room changes.

The Salem Art Association Gallery invites you to the Opening Reception on Friday, March 4, 2022 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Free and open to the public.

Exhibition dates are March 5 through April 2, 2022. While you are there do not forget to visit our beautiful Gallery Shop located as you come in the front door. So many one-of-a-kind handcrafted treasures by local artists! I have a selection of 8 smaller paintings, miniature original acrylics with tiny easels, and matted prints of my work in the shop.

Salem Arts Association Gallery and Shop are located an antique yellow house by Derby Wharf at 159 Derby Street, Salem, MA. Hours are Saturdays and Sundays 12 noon until 6:00 p.m. www.SalemArts.org 978-745-4850 #SalemArts Info@SalemArts.org

Poster for Salem Holiday Artists’ Market

I was very happy to have been commissioned to paint the artwork for the 2018 Salem Holiday Artists’ Market poster. It is a fantasy version of Old Town Hall in Salem on a snowy night, bustling with holiday activity. Little mice can be seen through the illuminated windows and socializing outside the Hall.

The real Salem Holiday Artists’ Market is a fantastic place to do your holiday shopping if you are looking for original, one-of-a-kind gifts for your friends and family. Artists display their varied creations throughout the historic building in the middle of lovely downtown Salem. So many styles and mediums are available: wood, textiles, ceramics, jewelry, paintings, photography and more.

Marblehead Art Assoc. Winter Exhibit

The Marblehead Arts Association Winter Members’ Exhibit will be on display from the opening reception on November 10 through December 23, 2018. The show is hung at the MAA’s Hooper Mansion, 8 Hooper St., Marblehead, MA.

My acrylic painting, House of the Seven Gables Front Door, is my entry in this show. It was painted outside in the gardens of the H7G on an absolutely gorgeous May morning. The shadows were very pronounced at that time of day, and I was inspired by the series of strong diagonal shadows falling across the front of the house, caused by the sun hitting the slanted gables.

Gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday & Sunday, noon-5 pm and Saturday, 10-5 pm. Closed Monday. Tel: (781) 631-2608.

Salem Arts Assoc. Members’ Showcase

The Salem Art Association is presenting its Members’ Showcase running from the opening reception on Friday, November 9 until December 14, 2018. There is no theme this time. Since members have been asked to submit their best and favorite work, there is a wonderful variety of subjects, mediums and styles.

My entry for this show is my painting, The Silversmith, a large watercolor. It is framed in an elaborate antique frame I found in my attic when I bought my house — just like in a movie!¬†One of the reasons I decided¬†to enter this painting right now is in response to the recent terrible massacre at a Pittsburg synagogue. If only we could all see the humanity in each other.

The Salem Arts Association gallery is located at 211 Bridge Street, Salem, MA. Gallery hours are Saturdays and Sundays from noon until 5:00 p.m.
