Please join us at the gallery reception on Friday April 13 from 5:00 to 8:00 PM, We will present awards at 6:00
We're proud to announce “Exhibition Exhibition”, an artistic exploration of personal expression through fashion and presentation that acts as accompaniment to the Salem Arts Festival’s Spring Fashion Show.
We're also featuring live music performed by Molly Pinto Madigan at the reception.
Hailed for her angelic voice and haunting compositions, Molly Pinto Madigan won first place in WUMB's Boston Folk Festival Songwriting Contest and was named "Artist of the Year" at Salem State University, her alma mater. Since her debut as the lead singer for the teen bluegrass band Jaded Mandolin, Madigan has submerged herself in the dark, luscious world of ballads, drawn to their magic, and her original songs echo with the whisperings of the American and European traditional music.

Salem Arts Association Presents “MUSE”. We invite Salem Art Association members to reveal what inspires them to be creative. We’re challenging artists to tell us what makes you tick, what made you become artists and what it is that keeps you going. Each image will include a statement about your inspiration and artistic development.
