    “ReVISION” Looking at Old Things in New Ways!

    Artists Reception Friday May 5 from 5-8 PM

    Exhibition dates: May 5 through June 25

    Salem Arts Association presents “ReVISION”, an exhibition that asks the artist and viewer to “look at old things in new ways”. How would you ReTHINK, ReDefine, or ReIMAGINE your world. How can we RePURPOSE, ReCYCLE, and ReUSE objects to be seen in a new way. We’re asking artists to push the limits and present work that challenges perceptions or presents a new way of seeing old things, places, and ideas.     

    Awards: Our guest judge John Archer, will select submissions for awards. John Archer is an award-winning painter, Drawing teacher, President of the Danvers Arts Association, and owner of Archer Insurance of Beverly MA. Archer is a multidisciplinary artist working primarily in soft pastel, photography, and acrylic. His work can be found in public and private collections throughout New England. Archer's philosophy is that all the arts are intimately interrelated. Graphic arts must dance across the page or canvas, instrumentalists must sing, actors must sculpt their lines and scenes, and dancers must paint across the stage.

    Call for Art: “Uncommon Threads”

    NOT your Grandmother’s Sewing Circle!

    Salem Arts Association presents “Uncommon Threads”, an exhibition that redefines the use of fibers in art. This exhibit goes way beyond the quilting of old. In this exhibition we challenge the artists to discover new inspirations using fibers, fabrics, textiles of any kind, and inventive weaving.

    Fiber art refers to fine art whose material consists of natural or synthetic fiber, such as fabric, plastics, wire, thread or yarn, as well as other less likely components. It focuses on the use of materials and the artist’s skill and labor as part of the works' significance, with priority of aesthetic value over utility.

    We welcome your artistic interpretation of the theme from assemblages to installations, wall hangings to wearable art. Let your imagination go!


    Submission Criteria: This exhibit is open non-members and current Salem Arts member artists who may submit artwork in a variety of 2D & 3D media for the juror’s consideration. This Membership Showcase encourages artists to submit items that adhere to our theme of “Uncommon Threads” using fiber arts and textiles as your inspiration.

    Submission Fees: Salem Arts members fee is $5.00 per artwork. Non-members fee is $10.00 per submission. Artists may submit up to three artworks.

    Submission Form: Please download the gallery submission formand provide all required information requested, and follow instructions on the form. Printed copies must be submitted with your submissions.

    Exhibition Jurying: Salem Arts Gallery Committee representatives will jury this exhibit. Criteria will be based on execution quality and space available.

Artists Reception: Friday May 5 from 5-8 PM

Salem Arts Association presents “ReVISION”, an exhibition that asks the artist and viewer to “look at old things in new ways”. How would you ReTHINK, ReDefine, or ReIMAGINE your world. How can we RePURPOSE, ReCYCLE, and ReUSE objects to be seen in a new way. We’re asking artists to push the limits and present work that challenges perceptions or presents a new way of seeing old things, places, and ideas.
