New Sculptures Installed in Salem
Salem Art Works has grown remarkably over the past ten years under the direction of its founder, Anthony Cafritz. SAW believes that art is a necessity and has worked diligently to foster partnerships with artists, supporters, local organizations and the people of Salem, N.Y. Cafritz reached out to the Salem Courthouse Community Center several years ago to offer the loan of large-scale sculptures to enhance its park-like grounds. Guests attending the annual Al Fresco Dinner always marvel at these creative works. This year, Courthouse Community Center director Donna Farringer met with SAW’s programs co-ordinator and curator, Jenny Hillenbrand, to select three new amazing works of art, which were installed on July 23. The works on display for the coming year are: Lilly Reeves Montgomery’s ‘Dream Catcher Number Three,’ Joe Graesser’s ‘Untitled’ and Christopher Keating’s ‘Deconstruction of a Mind.’ The CCC is grateful for the generosity of SAW and its artists.
