Calls for Art2020 Season at Salem Arts

Here you will find opportunities to submit artwork for inclusion in our gallery exhibits at the Salem Arts Association.



Call for Art: "The Heart of History - The House of Seven Gables Through Artists Eyes" - November 8, 12-3

"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."
- Nath
aniel Hawthorne
