The Creative Arts Community, which operates the Menucha Retreat Center in Corbett, curates a group show of artwork this March at Squib created by participants of the residential workshop.  The program, started in 1966,  offers 120 creatives a two-week immersion experience focused on primarily visual arts, including fine and applied arts. Volunteer board members selected the artwork to represent  finished pieces by typical campers, some of which are exhibiting for the first time. Ceramic, collage,  metalsmithing and assemblages will be on display.
An artist reception for all March exhibitors happens during Art Spree 6p First Friday, March 1st at Pop Up art gallery in the Salem Center Mall.

Pop Up art gallery is shifting gears to offer more programming and opportunities for creatives, volunteers and anyone interested in Salem placemaking. We have the gallery space for at least another year and two exhibition spaces on Liberty St. that need curating. We need volunteers for staffing, event planning and production. We also need help with the 10th Mid-Valley Video Festival in February and 6th Cherry City Music Festival in April.

Wanna volunteer? Drop into the gallery between 6p-8p on Thursday, January 17 for more info or contact us. We’re located upstairs next to Made in Oregon in the Salem Center Mall.
