Art Sale

SALEM - The Greater Salem Artists Association (GSAA) hosts its 27th Annual Spring Fling Art Show and Sale on Sat., April 20, at the Woodbury School, 206 Main Street, Salem.

All proceeds of the event will support the GSAA and fund a scholarship for a promising local art student. Each year, a scholarship is awarded at the January monthly meeting.

The free one-day event runs from 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m., on Sat., April 20. GSAA artists and their guests will share original paintings, prints and note cards for exhibit and purchase. Those in attendance can meet artists and check out the exhibit of paintings offered for competition. Adult and student artists will compete for ribbons and prizes.

The “Cookie Walk” has become one of the most popular activities of the event. Attendees have the chance to buy a box of home-made cookies for $5.00, and enter a raffle for a chance to win art or other great prizes.

The event will also feature live music as well as refreshments and ample parking at the school.

The Greater Salem, NH Artists Association was formed in 1986 by the late Edith Kaufman for the purpose of gathering artists together to share their passion for art in all its many forms. The Greater Salem Artists Association (GSAA) still promotes the arts and welcomes new members of all degrees of artistic ability with the desire to enrich their endeavors in art and pass on to others this passion that art brings out.
