About this Event

The Salem Art Gallery has TWO new exhibits that will be on view from July 16th-Sept 1st, there will be an opening reception with free admission, live music, and complimentary refreshments and charcuterie on the evening of July 26th, from 6-8PM.
In Milton Hall you will find the abstract collaborative paintings that make up the exhibit, “The One Who is Two”. This collaborative show was created by the brilliant minds of Lana Guerra @crudethings and seaN @crpfctry.
In our Main Hall you will find a Salem Art Gallery juried exhibition which is a result of our open call for art inspired by the moral panic surrounding gaming of all forms. The open call for art closes on June 17th; there is less than week left to submit! Artists chosen will be notified by June 20th at the latest.
The One Who Is Two -this curious wording not only describes Lucifer, who is both Angel and Devil, but is also representative of the Duo whose work is on display in this collection; a singular vision presented by two artists: Lana Guerra and seaN. This collaboration has been produced by two artists working in tandem, across the continent, between New Orleans and Los Angeles, trading pieces back and forth while manifesting that singular vision, of that complex One, known as the Lightbringer.
Lucifer is Angel and Devil, and those two positions hold a spectrum of personality in between. This collection seeks to translate and fix that spectrum into a cohesive, digestible unit.
Pixel Panic- An accumulation of work inspired by the moral panic surrounding gaming of all forms in the 90s, 2000s, and today. Trading card games, roleplaying games, first person shooter games, and video games in general have caused moral panic throughout modern history.
Despite no evidence to suggest videos games in the long term make people more violent or more likely to do violent things people still side with that argument.
