Come discover the organizational process of visual and verbal mapping using techniques of textual branching, expressive lettering, and symbolic illustration. Plan to use black and white pens, then color markers on 8x10 paper. Learn to breathe, journey inside, and gain expressive clarity on an idea.

Salem Arts Association is pleased to present a solo exhibition featuring paintings and Woodcuts by Raymond Gilbert. 

Working in multiple mixed medium paintings and woodcuts Gilbert’s work draws much from current life events creating contemporary historical paintings. His creative process generally starts by throwing sweeping lines and pulling out abstract forms which begin to materialize into a basic composition. A work is deemed finished when a coherent balance between color, space and form has been accomplished. 

Artist Reception will be hosted at the Salem Arts Gallery on Friday August 3 from 5-8 PM

The exhibition will be on display August 3 through August 26, 2018
