Salem Art Association, in collaboration with Salem Multicultural Institute, is excited to announce a call to artists for our collaborative November and December exhibition, Winter Light, to be held in the Bush Barn Art Center and the Multicultural Institute Gallery.
THEME – Winter Light
In the dark and gloomy days of winter, light plays an important role in lifting the spirits and brightening lives around the world. To counteract the darkness of winter, many cultures hold festivals of light.
There are many people of different cultures – indiginous, Pacific Islanders, the Jewish community, and various Asian communities to name but a few – living together in the Willamette Valley who celebrate Winter in their own beautiful, unique way. We encourage artists from all cultures and communities to create something for this show so that we may come together and enjoy the many different ways our cultures celebrate Winter Light.
We invite regional artists working in all mediums to apply. SAA and the Salem Multicultural Institute are committed to equity and inclusion, and we welcome and encourage people of all races, ethnicities, abilities, and gender identities to apply for the show as well as visit our galleries.
