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
