Holiday Showcase Exhibit

Salem Arts Association is excited to close their 2020 exhibition schedule with a showcase of member artwork. It’s a great opportunity to find the perfect gift of art for your friends or family, or to treat yourself to something beautiful.

Current Salem Arts members are exhibiting their best work showing the community what they have to offer in all of our diverse styles and artistic disciplines. The Holiday Showcase Exhibit can be viewed at the Salem Arts Association Galleries at 159 Derby Street in Salem through December 20.

Heart of History Exhibit 

“The aspect of the venerable mansion has always affected me like a human countenance… It was itself like a great human heart, with a life of its own, and full of rich and sombre reminisces. The deep projection of the section story gave the house a meditative look, that you could not pass it without the idea that it had secret to keep.” 
– Nathaniel Hawthorne 

Salem Arts Association members were invited to visit, be inspired, and to create art based on the historic buildings and gardens of the House of Seven Gables. Work created at any time was eligible for display. The Heart of History Exhibit can be viewed at the Salem Arts Association Galleries.

Holiday Artists’ Market 

The Salem Arts Association invites artists and artisans to showcase and sell their work at their Holiday Artists’ Market at Salem Arts Association Galleries. 

The Holiday Artists’ Market Weekends will feature a quality selection of vendors of artwork and handmade artisan products. Vendors will be limited to a small number, with participants changing every weekend. The galleries will be open through December 20.
