About the Salem Arts Association Gallery Show
Hark back to an earlier time, or leap forward to a re-envisioned future: Steampunk, Neo- Victorian, Retro Future, or Post-Apocalyptic Nostalgia. Celebrate an era that promised air ships and time travel. Remember a past of steam engines, industry and innovation.
The juror for this show will be Victorian Lady Lisa. She is known both locally and nationally for her Cape Ann Cable TV show, "All things Victorian" and her book, "International Steampunk Fashions." She is currently writing a second book on Victorian/Edwardian fashion. A third book, with Steampunk designer/model phenom Kato, is also being planned. Lady Lisa also has the honor of being a portrait model for artists in PA and recently for famed impressionist, Jude Abbe. She is a member of one of the Rockport Art Association. Lovely seaside Rockport, MA is where Lady Lisa resides.
