The Art Corner was devastated by fire in April 2008. This Saturday, June 28, the Salem Arts Association will host a Benefit for The Art Corner at the Ward 2 Social Club from 7pm to 10pm. The event will include music by Charlie Chesterman and the Motorbikes with a special guest appearance by Barrence Whitfield. Raffles and a silent auction will include juried works of craft and art, artist designed jewelry and gift certificates donated by local artists and business owners.
"The Art Corner’s owner Wendy Snow-Lang and her husband Charles Lang, are active supporters of the arts on the North Shore, and played a pivotal role in the re-formation of the Salem Arts Association last year," says Benefit Chair Sara Ashodian. "We think this evening is a fitting way to help them begin their re-building efforts."
Tickets are $10, and are available at the Salem Chamber of Commerce, 265 Essex Street, and Experimental Art Gallery and Studio on Artists Row just off Front Street in Salem.
