The Bush Barn Art Center‘s exhibitions are operated by the Salem Art Association. Located in historic Bush’s Pasture Park in downtown Salem, the Bush Barn features three galleries and a gift gallery which are free and open to the public year-round. The galleries exhibit and interpret works of 20th and 21st century fine art and crafts by artists living or working in the Pacific Northwest and beyond who, through their creative modes of expression, enrich our community and foster a deeper understanding of the value of visual art.
