Salem is a place steeped in culture. With a strong and fascinating history, it is far from a surprise that the local arts scene is worth checking out.
In fact, there are numerous galleries worthy of not only local attention, but also perhaps a national focus. Take advantage of your proximity to these great collections and enjoy the many galleries located just minutes from your Salem apartment.
- Similarly, the Kensington-Stobart Gallery at the Hawthorne Hotel delivers classical paintings that often take on maritime themes. They especially focus on oil paintings by maritime Artist John Stobart.
- Marine Arts Gallery at Essex Street offers a nod to the rich past of Salem, while also celebrating the present artistic scene. You’ll find tons of marine-themed paintings with ships setting sail.
- Meanwhile, the Peabody Essex Museum goes above and beyond the standards for a local museum and consistently delivers fascinating exhibits. Through April 29, catch their exhibit “Shapeshifting: Transformations in Native American Art,” as well as their permanent collection of cultural, oceanic and maritime art.
For more information on these and the many other galleries and art-related events in Salem, consult with the Salem Arts Association and their excellent events calendar.
