Photo highlights of past musical performances from Salem Film Fest

RECEPTION MARCH 15  5:30-7 PM

I was born on the island of Martha's Vineyard, and raised in a post and beam home built by my parents. I spent most of my childhood exploring the natural landscapes around me, and recreating my experiences through a variety of artistic mediums.  I received my first camera when I was 7 years old, and with its lens I imagined I lived in a world where dreams and fantasy were possible, and my camera was the conduit. My photographs are an attempt to create new worlds, and capture moments that inspire contemplation within the photographic frame. 

I hold a Bachelors Degree in Fine Art from the Massachusetts College of Art, and a Master of Social Work Degree from Salem State University.

Vintage Vignettes: Collages by Lisa Galperin at Cinema Salem

Vintage Vignettes: Collages by Lisa Galperin at Cinema Salem

CinemaSalem is pleased to announce Vintage Vignettes: Collages by Lisa Galperin with a free public reception on Wednesday, February 18 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at CinemaSalem at One East India Square in Salem, MA.

Vintage Vignettes: Collages by Lisa Galperin will be on view from February 3 through March 3, 2015. The exhibition is free and open to the public when CinemaSalem is open for movies.

Vintage Vignettes: Collages by Lisa Galperin features twelve collages on panel. Galperin mines vintage magazines ranging from fashion to lifestyle to travel and carefully cuts out provocative images. The collages represent a mashup of Mad Men and Modern Millie with a good dose of Hollywood glamour.

Galperin practices zeitgeist preservation with her artwork. Her pieces are alive with beauty, nostalgia, and a quest for meaning. Who is the person behind the icon? What does marriage mean? Who is selling whom? She explores issues of identity, sexuality, and the female form. These compelling combinations of advertising images provide the perfect backdrop for discovery.

Vintage Vignettes are nifty and thrifty—none of the collages are priced over $50. Lisa Galperin earned a BFA from Wayne State University. Galperin resides in Michigan. Vintage Vignettes is her first show in Massachusetts.

CinemaSalem presents Cubist Chicks Don’t Date Old Masters

Free public reception on Thursday, September 4 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m

CinemaSalem presents Cubist Chicks Don’t Date Old Masters from August 30 through September 29, 2014, a painting exhibition by Patrick O’Donnell, with artist’s reception on September 4

The exhibition is free and open when CinemaSalem is open for movies.

Cubist Chicks Don’t Date Old Masters is a collection of recent paintings encompassing the varied styles of Patrick O’Donnell. O’Donnell loves movies and music, reveling in the punk and garage band sound. His paintings reflect his D.I.Y. nature and display a riot of color; while strains of Cubism, Dadism, and Expressionism can also be found. Witty observations, social commentaries, and abstract art are all present in his art.

O’Donnell readily admits he apprenticed as a house painter and was never formally trained as an artist. He is a self-taught artist, gleaning his knowledge from pop culture and books borrowed from his favorite library. He resides in Beverly, MA.

Brian Conroy on Exhibit at Cinema Salem

CinemaSalem presents The Movies in My Mind from August 1-27, 2014, a
photography exhibition by Brian Conroy, with artist’s reception on
August 7

CinemaSalem is pleased to announce The Movies in My Mind, a photography exhibition featuring the work of Brian Conroy, with a free public reception on Thursday, August 7 from
7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at CinemaSalem at One East India Square in Salem.

The Movies in My Mind will be on view from August 1 through August 27, 2014. The exhibition is free and open when CinemaSalem is open for movies.

The Movies in My Mind is a series of photographs that features several character studies captured on color 35mm film—the old school analog kind that results in negatives that are processed and printed. Brian Conroy created elaborate narratives for his subjects complete with appropriate costumes, hairstyles, and artificial backgrounds. These conceptual portraits evoke the film stills of Cindy Sherman. Conroy’s photographs play with issues of mental health, social commentary, politics, selfie-culture, and gender identity.

Conroy is a Salem-based artist. He studied at New England School of Photography.
