Reception November 11, 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm

In the dark, gloomy days of winter, light plays an important role in lifting the spirits and brightening lives around the world. To counteract the darkness, cultures – both here and abroad – hold festivals of light. This exhibition showcases the many different people living together in the Willamette Valley and celebrating winter with their own, unique customs.

Salem Art Association, in collaboration with Salem Multicultural Institute, presents Winter Light, a juried exhibition of the work of local artists, depicting the beauty of light in the still, quiet moments found in nature and in the warmth of hearth and home.

Join us in celebrating this multi-cultural portrayal of winter, Winter Light.

SAA is delighted to announce the winner of The People’s Choice Award in the Winter Light exhibition is Susan Appleby! Susan created “Light Lingers on Backroads”.

We would like to give a huge thank you to all the talented artists who entered work for this inspiring exhibition. SAA wishes you all happy holidays and a creative 2023!
