Large Scale Works from the Salem Arts Association
May 22 - June 28, 2009
The Salem Arts Association is living large this spring as it presents Large Scale Works for their May/June gallery exhibit on Salem's Artists' Row. The SAA joins Experimental Art Gallery and Studio and Theory Art Space in asking the age old question, "Does Size Really Matter?" Is the size of a piece of art simply a matter of personal choice? The artist's vision? Can a large scale work provide an intimate experience? Can a small work instill the awe that a sweeping landscape provides? Or is it just a matter of filling the space over the sofa and coordinating with the carpet?
Included in the SAA's exhibit are works of mixed media, fiber, sculpture and traditional works on canvas. The exhibit features work by Charles Lang, Michael Ramseur, Paula Beaulieu and Loredana Jacques, among others. Large Scale Works opens Friday, May 22 and runs through Sunday, June 28 at the Salem Arts Association Gallery on Salem's Artists' Row, 24 New Derby Street, Salem, MA. An artists' reception will be held in each of Artists' Row's exhibit galleries on Saturday, June 13 from 4PM to 7PM.
