Support The Arts
We need your support now more than ever.
Due to current restrictions we are unable to host events where most of our operating costs are collected. Please consider donations of any amount. In January, after 13-years, we moved into our new home in the Derby Street Historic District.
Your support ensures we thrive in our new galleries.
Primavera - from the Italian - "in the style of springtime." In “Primavera” Salem Arts Association invited the community to share work in all mediums around the themes of the spring season, fresh starts, healing and any other interpretation applicable to this theme.
Image / Imagination is an exhibit that considers the way the artist imbues artwork with their personal statement. All art can be viewed as an imaginative interpretation of the physical world. Exhibited work includes but is not limited to surreal art, fantasy art, dystopic images, wearable apparel that serves as a costume or disguise and masks.Exhibit Info
Paul Nathan Gallery
We're proud to host the largest collection of Paul Nathan artworks in the world. Nathan's unique process starts with acrylic paintings which are then photographed and composed as collage creating a whimsical and wonderful world uniquely their own.
Paul Nathan has occupied this location since the mid-1980's and through his generosity and vision as an artist Salem Arts Association enjoys presenting our galleries in this space with Paul.
