UpSalem adds some color to First Wednesday, November 6 with Outside Inside, a large-format, graffiti-style exhibition of more than a dozen Salem and Portland artists, led by Matt Kenitzer and Chris Casarez. An artist reception, held 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., will feature participating artists, a skateboard demonstration and refreshments. Here’s the Facebook event.
Salem creatives take center stage during boho chic fashion event at UpSalem on Friday, November 8th. Last month’s Valleylicious Style Show during Mix-n-Mash gave us a taste of our growing local talent pool, as designers, models, aerialists, parkourists and fencers performed to an original composition by Ivan de Prume, former drummer for White Zombie. The most common response from the audience was “I didn’t know anyone did this in Salem.” This month’s show will be even better with stage fighting, belly dancing and boho chic style. Salem Ale Works is pouring and Fresh n Local refreshments are available starting 7:00 p.m, with the show starting at 8:00 p.m. The event is all-ages with a $10 suggested donation.
Property and business owners interested in increasing their social networking potential and ways to attract more customers during the holidays are the subject of classes scheduled during November.
$10 suggested donation per workshop.
