Salem artists will open their
Salem artists will open their studios for the public on Friday and Saturday, September 16th and 17th. This is a self-guided driving tour featuring 16 artists and is sponsored by Artists in Action. Visual mediums include a wide variety of painting styles, drawing, photography, digital painting, metal, mixed media, fiber, printmaking and book arts. Items will also be offered for sale.
Open studios are a great opportunity for visitors to talk with the artists about their art materials and processes, and what inspires them to create their works. Art admirers may learn more about what is involved in creating a piece of art and get to know an artist more personally. Emerging or established artists may gain valuable information and inspiration on how to proceed with their own art or perhaps try a new technique. Original art and reproductions can be purchased from the artists in a relaxed and creative atmosphere.
Elsinore Framing and Fine Art Gallery at 444 Ferry St. SE will be hosting oil painter Jens Lerback.
Tour wristbands may be purchased in advance at the Elsinore Framing & Fine Art Gallery. Tour maps and wristbands will also be available for purchase at each artist location. While driving the tour look for white signs with purple lettering and purple balloons to correspond with locations shown on the map.
