We're is pleased to announce our move to a new home at “The Bridge at 211” in Salem, MA. This facility will provide the Salem Arts Association with excellent gallery exhibition space, a gallery shop, workshop area, and event facilities. Salem Arts was founded in 2007 and this year celebrates our 10-year Anniversary. This new facility offers Salem Arts members, and the public, unprecedented exhibition and learning opportunities. 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.”
The Paula Beaulieu Scholarship is awarded each spring for $1000 to a student pursuing the visual arts either through a university program or through an art school. Paula Beaulieu was an active artist in the Salem Arts Association and taught young and old alike through her program “Connect with Their Creativity.” Her family has chosen Salem Arts Association and Salem High School as beneficiaries of any donations made in her honor.
Salem High School students in the 12th grade going on to the college of their choice the following autumn who are in financial need are eligible. Interested students should complete the application and provide the required information.
