Reception: Acceptance / Alienation

  • Friday, May 24, 2024
  • 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
  • Salem Arts Association, 159 Derby Street, Salem MA

Acceptance / Alienation:  It has been said by critics of abstract art that abstract works are alienated from reality, rendering them incomprehensible to the viewer.  Similarly, many famous artists have expressed alienation through their works, both abstract and not.  In today’s post-pandemic world, the social condition places individuals on a spectrum between being an outsider or accepted within a variety of boundaries. As artists we create inside the lines and beyond our limits. Salem Arts Association invites our artist community to explore our feelings of belonging and exclusion, consider our place in and around our community and what community means to us, and to express forms of acceptance or alienation in ways that truly embody their voices.

This exhibition will be on display as part of the Salem Arts Festival, June 1 - 3, 2024

  • Reception: Friday, May 24, 2024, 6:00-8:00 PM
  • Exhibition Dates: May 25 – June 22, 2024

Music Performance

Amyjo Savannah

Southern born singer/songwriter Amyjo Savannah has a signature, soulful timber & deep, powerful resonance to her wide-ranging vocals. Singing in styles reminiscent of Odetta, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Mavis Staples, Tom Waits & Robbie Basho. Her writing is equally dynamic & heartfelt. A combination that showcases her illustrative storyteller delivery.

She has played at Sundance Film Festival three years running performing at The Star Bar & The Gibson Lounge. As well as performing at the High Times Doobie Awards at SXSW, and The Showbox in Seattle.
