Get ready, get set… for fun and unique opportunities like these:

Break up the monotony of otherwise isolated days with a socially distanced activity. Think guided arboretum tour with a naturalist or fly fishing at a secret lake with casting lessons and a gourmet lunch. How about a round of golf or a cooking class? A private wine tasting and art talk in Salem’s newest downtown gallery?

Get your sweet tooth on with fabulous desserts – rich cheesecake, decadent layer cake, luscious fruit pie, and more – made with love by talented bakers, some of whom you’ll recognize. Redeem your gift certificate just in time for the holidays or for any occasion throughout the year.

Grace your wall with art by renowned, local artist Paul Gentry. His recent passing is a great loss for our community, but his work lives on. A number of Paul’s prints will be up for auction, thanks to the generosity of a SFAS friend.

This is only the beginning – the full list will post on Nov 2. Be sure to visit our Smith Fine Arts Series Facebook page for updates
