Salem Arts Association offers several opportunities for artist members to share their artwork with the community. We have a Gallery Shop for retail sales and multiple gallery spaces for ongoing exhibitions. Periodically we will offer off-site opportunities at other venues and pop-up shows.
Each Salem Arts member submitting work this season will need to agree to our Artist Agreement in their member profile to display work.
A Call for Art will on the same days as take in for exhibitions, typically the Sunday preceding the start of new exhibitions, to refresh the inventory and all Artists will be permitted to bring in new artwork and to remove/replace any & all older artwork.
The Art Drop Off days will be the Sunday preceding the start of new exhibitions from 12-3 pm.
Appointments always need to be made with the Gallery Shop Chairperson.
No artwork for the Gallery Shop should be priced at more than $500.00.
All Artists are required to have a 1-page Artist Bio/Statement at the time of submission.
Please bring a liberal supply of business cards.
ALL Artists who display are required to volunteer 3+ hours PER MONTH for the Salem Arts Association. To find volunteer opportunities, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Or visit our Gallery Volunteer page for more info.
Members may submit the following for the Gallery Shop:
Inventory sheets will need to be filled out and updated when entering or removing artwork
On a device with MS Office, simply click on the form link above.
On a Mac without Office, click on the link above. It will open in "Numbers". When it is open you will notice you cannot use it yet. Hit the download icon in the top right corner. This will bring a little rectangular window to the bottom left of your screen, as when you download anything. If you click on it to open it, it will automatically switch to the "numbers" program. The spread sheet is now workable for you to use. After completing the inventory, you then "share" document with email@example.com - but a little window pops up asking if you would like to convert it back to the original excel form and the answer is YES
On an iPad without Office, you can download Apple's spreadsheet program - "numbers" - if you're running IOS 11 (as of this writing). Then proceed as above for a Mac. Alas, Apple no longer supports new installation of Numbers for older versions of IOS.
Microsoft Office also offers IOS apps for iPhone and iPad.
If you do not have a spreadsheet app on your device, you can use "Google Sheets". Just save the spreadsheet to your device, go to "google sheets". Start a new blank sheet. click "File->open", then "upload" and select the saved file.
If you really cannot produce a spreadsheet, you can click here to print this form, then fill it out and someone at SAA will create the spreadsheet for you.
1. Artist: Type your full name in the box next to Artist.
**The Gallery Shop will make every attempt to give equal display to all artwork accepted. However, it is a juried decision on acceptable art and will also depend on space available.
