September with Salem Arts

The Salem Arts Association is pleased to announce the 7th annual PEM INSPIRATIONAL SHOW, The Gift,which is sponsored by the SAA and inspired by the Peabody Essex Museum's Fabergé Revealedexhibition.  This year, participants will delight you with their interpretation of The Gift: What is the definition of a gift?  What is the meaning of a gift?  Some artists might even create a "gift" with interpretations in various media. 

At the Peabody Essex Museum's Fabergé Revealedshow, you will see some amazing gifts there that were created for the aristocracy. The name Fabergé is synonymous with refined craftsmanship, jeweled luxury and the Russian imperial family.  This exhibition explores the ideas of luxury, innovation, entrepreneurship and imperial patronage while providing insight into Peter Carl Fabergé's life, business and legacy.

Last year, the Salem Arts Association presented Off the Top of Your Head,the 6thPEM Inspirational show inspired by the Peabody Essex Museum's Hats: An Anthology of Stephen Jones.  Visitors were delighted with over 45 pieces, some of which included real milliner's hats!  Within our community lies extraordinary talent, and the PEM INSPIRATIONAL brings out the best in our local artists.  This show is open to all artists - not just members of SAA.   

The Peabody Essex Museum has generously awarded its 181 Essex Street space to SAA for our September exhibition.  The curator of Fabergé Revealed, Dean Lahikainen, the Carolyn and Peter Lynch Curator of American Decorative Art for the Peabody Essex Museum, will judge our 7th PEM INSPIRATIONAL SHOW.

Also at the SAA gallery on Artist's Row during September: A new exhibition titled Mini Marvels, containing work that is 8" x 10" or smaller.  This exhibit will delight viewers of all ages with a variety of media and art that has been created in a small space.

Whether you're an artist or an art lover, Salem Arts in September will inspire and delight you!

Visit both of our locations!
