On Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 10-11, from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m., 18 studios and galleries across Salem County will feature exhibits and demonstrations in a wide variety of media—a wonderful opportunity to see and learn from artists at work, which is the title of the event.
Salem County’s rural countryside and quaint villages are especially beautiful in the fall and the county’s arts community has organized a special weekend celebration highlighting creativity and artistic expression.
Many sites are offering “hands-on” activities, including mural painting, glass cutting, leatherworking, and meditation exercises. There is no admission charge.
“Artists at Work promises to be an exciting and enjoyable way to explore Salem County,” said Deputy Freeholder Director Beth Timberman. “Each location is different and distinctive, and autumn is wonderful time of year to discover the possibilities here.”
Organized in cooperation with the Salem County Cultural and Heritage Commission, Artists at Work offers a full weekend of activities.
In addition to the studio and galleries, a number of restaurants and merchants are offering discounts and premiums to tourgoers.
Saturday evening, Appel Farm Arts and Music Center is providing a special discount on tickets to “Girlyman with special guests Po’ Girl.”
Hailed by the Village Voice as “really good, really unexpected and really different,” Girlyman features a variety of instruments to create a unique electric sound.
