Salem Arts Association announces our annual Artoberfest Exhibition

Salem Arts Association is proud to present our annual exhibit exploring Salem’s history with Autumn, Halloween, Witchcraft, occult, and the Spirit of the season. The resulting exhibit represents diverse interpretations of the theme and how, by bringing them together, we create a collective understanding of the themes.

He is influenced by pioneering trip-hop artists of the early 90s such as DJ Shadow, DJ Krush, DJ Cam & Portishead. He releases with Cold Busted Records & Dusted Wax Kingdom. He is a member of trip-hop trio Wax Triptych (with Mononome and Mr. Moods). 


Thank you to our Guest Juror, John Andrews.

John Andrews, the founder and managing director of Creative Collective, firmly believes in the transformative power of creativity. John is an expert at bridging divides, uniting diverse groups of people to work towards a common goal. John Andrews is a dynamic force for organizations and cities looking to enhance their performance and community engagement through creativity.
