Opening Reception for salem2salem Residents


In 2010 Salem Art Works partnered with the Lake Constance Cultural Department in Salem, Germany to create an international artist residency exchange program. Every year since, the organizations have taken turns hosting groups of interdisciplinary artists, alternating every other year between Salem, New York USA and Salem, Germany.

It’s our pleasure to host once again, so please join us at North Main Gallery in Salem, New York on August 23rd to celebrate these visiting artists with us!
