“ReVISION” Looking at Old Things in New Ways!
Artists Reception Friday May 5 from 5-8 PM
Exhibition dates: May 5 through June 25
Salem Arts Association presents “ReVISION”, an exhibition that asks the artist and viewer to “look at old things in new ways”. How would you ReTHINK, ReDefine, or ReIMAGINE your world. How can we RePURPOSE, ReCYCLE, and ReUSE objects to be seen in a new way. We’re asking artists to push the limits and present work that challenges perceptions or presents a new way of seeing old things, places, and ideas.

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.”
