The Salem Arts Association is excited to offer “Young at Art”, a showcase of artwork from local teenagers. This collection of artworks is created by students from Salem public, private, charter school students, and members of Salem-based organizations between the ages of 13 -19.
This exhibition has been installed in our brand new "Pickering Wharf Gallery" at Salem Arts Association's new location.
Winners were chosen by our Salem Arts Association Exhibitions Curator, Heather Meri Stewart, and Board President James Bostick. We salute all our young artists participating, however the following students are deserving of additional recognition.
Kaylyn Sverker "Pieces of Me"
"The artist effectively deconstructs herself while composing multiple mediums of photography and printmaking, engaging color to amplify the mood of this creative and sculptural composition. We're left wondering if this image experiences completion or an endless tension of separation."
Jakari Maupin "Self"
"Through the use of pop-culture, ethnography, symbolism, and surrealism the image takes us on a journey through this artist's unique mind map. This is a very individual portrayal representing the sort of unrelenting and sometimes competing influences most have spinning and engaging within us. There's a poignant beauty within the chaos composed here.
