Salem Arts Association presents “Game On!” an exhibition exploring the meaning of “Play” in celebration of the 130th Anniversary of Salem’s own Parker Brothers Toy and Game Company. 


Salem Arts Association is pleased to present a solo exhibition featuring paintings, sculptures, and dioramas created by Frank Nagorka. 

Frank Nagorka has a passion for the Master artists of the Renaissance and their depiction of the human form. He is also interested in Greek Mythology and Biblical subjects. Frank transforms these themes in to modern versions of those subjects to bring the figure up-to-date to fit in and possibly shine in our modern world.

Artist Reception will be hosted at the Salem Arts Gallery on Friday July 6 from 5-8 PM

The exhibition will be on display July 6 through July 29, 2018

Our annual arts residency has arrived. Starting Monday we have access to paint and create at the House of the Seven Gables. Please register (FREE) and join us. 

En Plein Air at The House of the Seven Gables

May 14 through May 29

We invite our members to set up on the grounds during the peak season of the Spring flowering at the Gables; to be inspired, and reflect that inspiration in their paintings. 

Plein Air inspiration is a way we can interact with all  the elements,  we as artists will represent Light and Air.  

We will also be working among the visitors from all over the world which lends a lot of spontaneity to the authentic Plein Air experience. 

Register Here


Thursday May 31 6-8 PM

    At the residency's end, we will have a one night to exhibit the works of this year's residency at the House of the Seven Gables and then we will bring the exhibit to the Salem Arts Association Gallery to be available for viewing during the Salem Arts Festival and through the month of June.
