The Salem Art Association’s Community Arts Education program hosts an Artist-in-Residence (AIR) program in the Annex. This program aims to serve artists by providing a flexible space for artistic development and experimentation.
ARTIST IN RESIDENCE | MICHAEL HERNANDEZ
Artist in Residence | MICHAEL HERNANDEZ
May 1-31 | ANNEX STUDIO
Artist Michael Hernandez is the Artist-in-Residence in the Annex Studio for May. Hernandez says the work he’ll be producing in his residence will consist of experimental abstract expressions in various sizes and mediums (primarily acrylic paintings) in combination with drawings and transfers. The transfers are typically design foundations that utilize typography and graphics that the compositions are built upon.
AIR studio space is located in the Annex at the Bush Barn Art Center. Completely renovated in 2016, the studio is geared primarily toward printmaking but can accommodate artists working in a variety of media. Separated from the studio by two, large sliding doors (which can be left open to encourage public interaction while working), is a large gallery which is made available for the AIR to display their process and/or finished work, or host workshops, lectures, etc.
