On Friday, January 22, the inaugural exhibition opens at The Garage at Salisbury House.  Guest curator Scott Sjobakken says, “I am very excited about the new exhibition program at Salisbury House and am honored to have been asked to guest curate the inaugural exhibition at “The Garage”. A portrait captures the subject at a specific moment in time. This show is literally an exhibition of portraiture, but the show is also meant to be a portrait of what’s going on in the local art scene right now. It is by no means a comprehensive and all inclusive survey, but rather a small slice of the larger whole. I chose artists whose work is representational for the most part, as I wanted this contemporary exhibit to have a dialog with the Salisbury House’s art collection.”
