The saas-C sign is at the entrance to the Association gallery at Artists Row. For people who missed the Salem by Salem show, the Salem Art Association continues to exhibit work by members at Artists Row, close to the Old Town Hall.

2006: New Technology Publishing, Inc. is pleased to announce that a selection of recent work by Jerry Halberstadt was shown at the Row Gallery in the heart of historic Salem, in the context of a group show including an eclectic collection of work by contemporary artists.

The gallery (at right) is in Artist's Row, in the shadow of the old Town Hall (left background), and in walking distance of Salem Harbor, many historic buildings, and the Peabody Essex Museum. The Row Gallery is in a brick building leased by Salem for the summer to an experienced gallery manager, Barbieo Barros Gizzi, herself an accomplished artist. At the time of this show (Summer 2006), the Row Gallery was the only venue for contemporary art and photography in Salem and Peabody, and complemented the exciting renewal and development of old Salem.
