Arts On The Move

Salem Arts Association Has a New Home.

by Dinah Cardin (April 2020)

When describing his playful multimedia art pieces, artist Paul Nathan says, “There’s a certain...happiness." A dynamic collage features a parade more suited for New Orleans passing in front of the Salem Custom House. “They are light and joyous, but not simple,” says Nathan. This could be a good description for Salem itself at times.

A story full of serendipity has been unfolding on Derby Street in Salem. It started when Nathan retired from his work as a lawyer a couple years ago and turned his law office (an 18th-century yellow clapboard building near the water) into the Paul Nathan Gallery and Museum, where he could sell his original artworks and greeting cards stamped with his work. But he wasn’t seeing enough foot traffic. Then one day, when Salem Arts Association president Jim Bostick wandered in. a friendly conversation sparked a historic moment for the arts in Salem. Fast-forward to April of this year and the SAA has a new 2,600-square-foot home across the street from the Salem Maritime National Historic Site and near landmarks like the House of the Seven Gables and Mercy Tavern.

In contrast with the Rockport Art Association, which began in 1921, Salem’s is the youngest on the North Shore, formed in 2007 by a group on Artists’ Row. The Salem Film Fest and Salem Jazz and Soul Festival were starting up at the same time. The SAA now has a membership of more than 300, representing artists living all over the North Shore.

The organization has been housed in several locations, the most recent being a former Universalist church on Bridge Street. “Our openings were incredibly well attended. It was a really good feeling. But after the opening, nothing” says the organization’s vice president and exhibition curator. Heather Stewart, who lives in Lynn and focuses on Realist paintings.

Stewart is thrilled to have a more permanent home with 11 galleries, space for classes and workshops, and even an artist-in- residence program.

“I consider this a story of growth,” says Bostick, who works as a photographer and designer. One common goal is to bring back the community “clubhouse" feel that existed on Artists’ Row, when musicians would just turn up on a Friday, says Bostick, the new location includes a patio filled with potential on Kosciusko Street. Sunlit galleries are named after a few of the 50 wharves where goods were offloaded from Salem ships traveling all over the world, A first-floor gallery is named in memory of active Salem artist Ellen Hardy, considered the driving force behind the association. Bostick credits Hardy with saying “The word arts has an s for a reason." Keeping this in mind, the association is looking into expanding their offerings, even turning their basement into a black box theatre. “Ellen is smiling down on us.” says Bostick of his friend, who died in 2017. “None of this would have happened without her.”

The SAA has gained traction with a busy calendar of events, like their annual show inspired by a chosen exhibition at PEM. In Oc­tober, there is a fitting Dark Arts exhibit And in the spring is the playful Salon des Refuses, a tradition that started last year, featuring works turned down by the Salem Arts Festival. Now, when an artist’s work is rejected, the city hands them a flyer for the Salem Arts show, says Bos­tick, adding that this opportunity is a tradition going back to the French Academy.

On April 3, the public can attend the first member showcase in the new location. “I feel really strongly about letting people show their work," says Stewart, who has acted as juror, curator, and critic for exhibitions at prominent galleries in the region.

Bostick is coming to the end of his three- year term as president and is happy to hand off the SAA stronger than he found it. Some of that is due to hard work and some to the magic of Salem. In the meantime, the building also houses a small gallery just for Paul Nathan's work. “I think it s a win-win all around," says Nathan. "I see this as an adventure. The more people you have, the more energy."

    NEW HOME FOR SALEM ARTS ASSOCIATION GALLERIES AND SHOP

    “THE BRIDGE AT 211” WELCOMES SALEM ARTS ASSOCIATION

    The Salem Arts Association is pleased to announce our move to a new home at “The Bridge at 211” in Salem, MA. This facility will provide the Salem Arts Association with excellent gallery exhibition space, a gallery shop, workshop area, and event facilities. Salem Arts was founded in 2007 and this year celebrates our 10-year Anniversary. We’ve grown to currently serve over 200 members, including more than 100 regional artists who will exhibit their artwork in our galleries and shop. This new facility offers Salem Arts members, and the public, unprecedented exhibition and learning opportunities. Plus our new home allows Salem Arts to take advantage of performance and event space available at “The Bridge” and better deliver our mission “To bring art, in all its forms, to the community and bring the community, in all its diversity, to the arts in Salem, Massachusetts.”  

    Salem Arts President Mary Szeman Best says “This is a very exciting time for the Salem Arts Association. On our tenth anniversary, we look forward to helping make The Bridge at 211 a must-see cultural destination. We also anticipate a very active and creative year for our organization.”


    While this is a new location for the Salem Arts Association, the 19th century building is a Salem landmark that was previously home to the First Universalist Society of Salem. Now known as “The Bridge at 211”, the former church, this new nonprofit organization has set out on a mission to become a hub for artistic, cultural and social events.

    Dale Yale, Executive Board member of The Bridge at 211 welcomes Salem Arts Association to help deliver on their combined mission.  “As someone who’s been emotionally connected with the 211 Bridge Street building since the early 50’s, I am excited to join forces with such an important member of the community as the Salem Arts Association as “The Bridge” turns a new corner. We’re eager to share our repurposed “hub” with them, celebrate their upcoming 10th anniversary, and move forward together in partnership.”

    Initial stages of our move have taken place over the past few weeks. Preparations for our 2017 calendar of exhibitions and events are in progress and will be released to the public as details are finalized. The following events will kick off our 2017 season in the new galleries.

    • Grand Opening and Salem Arts Member Showcase Exhibition Reception will be held Saturday March 4, 5:00 to 8:00 PM. This exhibit will feature a cross-section of artists and mediums representing the depth and breadth of our Salem Arts membership.
    • Regular gallery hours will be Saturdays and Sundays from 12:00 to 6:00 PM.
    • Salem Arts is hosting a Monthly Artists’ Meet-Up at Opus Underground on the second Wednesday of each month from 6:00 to 8:30 PM. Opus is located at 87 Washington St. Salem, MA.
    • Check our events calendar at www.SalemArts.org for membership information, upcoming workshops, and events.

    When visiting the Salem Arts Association at 211 Bridge Street please find our gallery entrance on Ash Street. Admittance to the gallery is always free.


    About Salem Arts Association: Salem Arts Association is an entirely volunteer-run nonprofit arts organization. Our mission is “To bring art, in all its forms, to the community and bring the community, in all its diversity, to the arts in Salem, Massachusetts”. Our membership is open to artists working in all media and all disciplines are welcome, as are arts lovers, enthusiasts, and patrons.

That programming will include continuing to provide a home to a number of community service groups.

    Salem Arts Association is home to many talented artists whose artwork can be found in our own gallery. It's also true that Salem Arts members work can be seen throughout New England. This month our neighbors at Marblehead Arts Association will feature three of our Salem Arts Association members in their galleries and in the artisan shop. 

    On display starting August 13 through September 25 in the galleries of Marblehead Arts are two feature solo exhibitions by our own Karen Hosking and Mary Taddie.  Peggy Farrell's work is featured in the Artisan Shop. 

    Be sure to attend the opening reception this Sunday, August 14, 2-4 pm.



    "Photo Center" by Karen Hosking

    Karen Hosking's solo photography exhibit explores "Americana".  In Hosking's view “Americana can be defined in many different ways.  For me, it means places and things that exist today that could or did actually exist in the past. I love bumping into establishments that existed decades ago, and continue to exist in the same form performing the same function.”

    In addition to Salem Arts Karen is a member of a number of local arts associations. Her photographs have won numerous awards in local and regional competitions and shows. She is interested in a variety of photographic styles including creative, black and white, scenic, architectural and fine art. Her goal in photographing is to engage with the viewer and capture a moment or a scene in a way that allows the viewer to see it in a new way.

    Karen Hosking will also host a "Photo Review and Photoshop Q&A" at Marblehead Arts Association. Bring your photos for review and critique. A computer will be available to demonstrate and answer questions about Photoshop, Sunday, September 18, 3-5 pm



    "Fish Gone Wild" by Mary Taddie

    Mary Taddie brings her skill in the arts of Ceramic Tile, Marble, and Italian Smalti techniques to her solo exhibition entitled "Catching The Wave". 

    Moved by the works of ancient Italian and Byzantine artisans, Mary Taddie creates unique and exciting Mosaic Wall Art and jewelry. Her creations use the same techniques and Venetian glass used over 500 years ago and employ a range of mosaic styles from ancient to modern. Mary’s finished pieces can be jewel like pendants as small as one square inch or murals and functional art as large as fifty square feet.

    She nips, chisels and cuts recycled material like travertine, marble, ceramic tile and slate using her specialty tools and wet saws while experimenting with adhesives, substrates and grouts.

    Join Mary for her artist demonstration "Materials and techniques used to create mosaic art", Sunday, September 18, 1-3 pm at Marblehead Arts Association



    Peggy Farrell, Salem Arts member and Board Member, is currently featured in the Artisan Shop. Her work in the shop includes her photography and cards.

    Mayor Kimberley Driscoll and the Salem Public Art Commission (PAC) announce “TradeWind,” a public art installation in Derby Square, running July through September, 2016.

    A call for artists and designers for this site specific installation around Old Town Hall and Derby Square brought in eighteen proposals. The team of op.AL, a trans-disciplinary practice from New York, formed by Jonathan A. Scelsa + Jennifer Birkeland, was selected by a PAC appointed Artist Selection Panel.

    A talk by the artist is scheduled for Saturday, July 9th at 4pm on site in Derby Square with an opening reception at 6pm in Old Town Hall. Both events are free and open to the public.

    “Salem has such a rich and important historic connection to the sea,” said Mayor Driscoll. “The concept for ‘TradeWind’ pays creative homage to that connection in a way that is playful, thoughtful, and expressive. I greatly look forward to the work’s installation near Old Town Hall and the continuation of our highly successful public art installation program.”

         


    Artist Statement

    Water and wind built Salem. Water carried the fishermen in their boats to the shores of Salem to settle. Wind enabled Salem’s merchant ships to sail across the ocean. From these ships of the East India Company treasures and trade were brought and sold at Town Hall, building a seaside village into a city. 

    To honor and celebrate the role that these elements and Town Hall have played in the growth of the city, we have created a dynamic installation of spinning houses, combined to form the shape of Salem Town Hall. These individual houses are made in two colors: Caribbean Blue and Saffron Yellow. The blue invokes the exotic waters of far-flung lands that provided importers with treasures and spices – such as jewelry and saffron – referenced in the yellow houses. 

    In the daytime these objects will showcase the fluid and changeable effects of wind while serving as a tribute to the fact that cities only exist as the sum of their parts. At night, they are lit from within projecting onto the face of town hall, giving observers the privilege of glimpsing something that predecessors could not: growth.

    This installation is both a nod to the past and a glimpse towards the future and a celebration of generations of individuals who have built and continue to build Salem. 

    Artist Bio

    op.AL is a trans-disciplinary New York practice, formed by Jonathan A. Scelsa + Jennifer Birkeland, seeking creative design solutions utilizing optics as a means of engaging the oppositions between Architecture and Landscape resulting in design solutions that strive to dis-integrate the subject-object relationship conventionally within the two disciplines. Jonathan is a Design Critic in the department of Architecture for University of Pennsylvania + the Rhode Island School of Design and Jennifer is a Visiting Professor at Pennsylvania State University in the Department of Landscape Architecture.

    Stephanie Imbeau is an installation artist based in New York whose practice investigates the way individuals seek community, personal security and a place to belong. She uses representations of protective structures as anthropomorphisms to explore this universal human impulse. These basic forms of shelter also provide the framework for a conceptual mapping of the barriers drawn to create safety and claim meaning using physical spaces.

    Hiroshi Jacobs is an artist and architect living and working in Washington, DC. He is a Lecturer in Architecture at The Catholic University of America, an architect with STUDIOS architecture, and the founder of HiJAC, a trans-disciplinary design & research collaborative. His designs and artwork have appeared in numerous publications and exhibitions, including Surface Magazine, Businessweek, Harvard GSD Platform, DesCours New Orleans, La Biennale di Venezia, (e)Merge, and the Harvard Arts First Festival. Hiroshi was selected as an outpost of OfficeUS for the American pavilion at the 2014 Venice Biennale, and was recently highlighted in DC Modern Luxury’s Best of DC 2015 Issue. Hiroshi has held academic faculty positions at Tulane University and in the Career Discovery program at Harvard’s Graduate School of Design.

    The team would like to thank and credit the following individuals and institutions who generously supported the construction of the project: District Design Lab, The Rhode Island School of Design Department of Architecture, The City College of New York Architecture Department, Andrea Kelly, Giacomo Sartorelli, William Allured, and Erin Wythoff.

    The Salem Arts Association recently presented The Paula Beaulieu Arts Scholarship to Jacqueline Muise, a 2016 Salem High School graduate. Jacqueline will be attending the Massachusetts College of Art & Design in the Fall.

    The Paula Beaulieu Scholarship was established by the Beaulieu family in honor of their late mother. Mrs. Beaulieu was an artist and art teacher in the Salem and Reading school systems. Along with the scholarship, Dan Beaulieu, Paula’s son, presented Jacqueline with an art print created Mrs. Beaulieu.

    The Paula Beaulieu Scholarship is a perpetual one which is awarded each year for $1000 to a student pursuing the visual arts either through a university program or through an art school. All of the visual arts will be considered. Paula Beaulieu was an active artist in the Salem Arts Association and taught young and old alike through her program “Connect with Their Creativity.” Her family has chosen Salem Arts Association and Salem High School as beneficiaries of any donations made in her honor. 

    Salem Arts congratulates Jacqueline and wishes her great success.
