Salem Art Association: August Exhibitions
Bush Barn Art Center
600 Mission St.
July 2 - 24, 2013
Salem Art Association features art projects through August 24, including the work Simpatico" by Tom Kunke and "Upcycle", the theme for the 2013 Salem Salon by multiple artists.
"Upcycle" presents artwork consisting of at least 50% recycled materials or trash. Works by youth and adult artists living or working within a 50-mile radius of Salem will be featured in the A.N. Bush Gallery. This fun, community-oriented exhibition is an open (non-juried) show designed to be inclusive and inspiring—both for local artists and for the public.
"Simpatico" New Work by Tom Kunke: Tom’s paintings incorporate a vibrant blend of impasto texture, verdant colors and unexpected twists, like the inclusion of collaged newspapers. Portraying diverse subjects such as orchards, koi ponds, sail boats and sky scrapers, his recent body of work finds common harmony in recurring hues and energetic brushwork.
