Salem County, NJ celebrates its artists on May 16 & 17, 2015, from 10am to 5pm, and invites you to visit local studios for behind-the-scenes, one-on-one experiences. Take in the beauty of Salem County’s landscape as you drive to the galleries and studios of your choice, where you can gain a unique understanding of the workspaces of 60 local artists. Working in fine art, pottery, sculpture, leather work, stained glass and MORE, our local artists are ready to share their creative passion. Children will enjoy the Dig Into Art activities available at many locations … and it is all FREE.
Freeholder Lee Ware said, “This year we are especially proud of our theme, ART with Roots: Works created from and inspired by the Salem Oak. Not only will visitors experience creative artists and unique art, but they can also stop at the oak and speak with volunteers to learn about the rich history of this 560 year old treasure.”
“Salem County looks forward to Arts In Bloom each year,” said Freeholder Director Julie Acton. “Spring is in the air and our local artists are showcased to the region, FREE of charge. We hope everyone will take advantage of this opportunity to explore the arts in our beautiful County!”
