Salem Art Works (SAW) is a contemporary art center and sculpture park located on a 119.4 acre former dairy farm in rural Washington County, New York. Founded in 2005 by artist Anthony Cafritz, SAW’s mission is to support both emerging and established artists in the creation of new and progressive work, as well as promote the understanding and appreciation of contemporary art within the region. At the core of SAW’s philosophy is the belief that inspired new works are created in an open and supportive environment encouraging interaction among artists and disciples. Based upon this tenet, SAW offers opportunities in four focal areas: cultural events, exhibitions, educational workshops, and artist programs.
SAW is interested in discussing residency opportunities and internships with students and alumni.
