Drawn Together: The Exhibit – Salem Arts Association is honored to host an exhibit of artwork produced during the Drawn Together sessions. Every Tuesday night since 2016 Sue Grillo and Beki Ferrar have put together uniquely eclectic scenes featuring live models as inspiration for drawing. Although initially at Gulu Gulu Café covid restrictions compelled them – with help from the wonderful people at Creative Collective – to switch to an online virtual Zoom! event. This is an exhibit of these drawings curated by Sue and Beki.

"Observance” Salem Arts Association members reflect on the Zachari Logan: Remembrance exhibit at the Peabody Essex Museum and the Covid-19 pandemic to create works in observance of our personal and collective experience.  We asked our members for work that reflects grief, anger and loss in addition to hope.  Works can be specific (e.g., memorials to lost loved ones) or symbolic.  We hope that this exhibit will provide a cathartic experience for the artists who participate and visitors to the gallery.  All media are welcome.
