David Ellsworth, Intersphere, 1991Bearing in mind that April 22 is Earth Day, combined with the fact that PEM has 3 exhibits in 2015 focused on the medium ‘wood’, we thought “Branching Out” was a fitting theme for this year’s event. We have invited local wood-turning artist Tommy Gagnon to create this year's awards.

So please consider joining the Salem Chamber, Senator Joan Lovely, Representative Paul Tucker, Mayor Kimberley Driscoll, and over 250 attendees in recognizing individuals and businesses for their accomplishments. 

If you would like more information, or if you would like to discuss your options with us, please call T. 978-744-0004, or email us.
