Gallery Information for Artist Members

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. 

Gallery Exhibit Information

Ongoing gallery exhibitions will be on display for one to two-month periods. New exhibits will begin each month with a reception the first or second weekend of each month. Take-in will always be held the Sunday preceding the new exhibition start. 

Visit our Calendar of Events for exhibition schedules. 

Use the links in each call for art to provide submission information.

Or Download and complete our take-in forms prior to delivering your work.

ALL exhibiting member artists are required to volunteer a minimum of three hours during each exhibition month.

Salem Arts Galleries ada Shop utilizes a hanging system consisting of a wire or rod suspended from a rail near the ceiling. We rarely use nails in our walls. Because of this it's very important to frame and present your work properly by following these rules. Submitted items will be inspected at take in

  • All work MUST be properly framed or otherwise presented for hanging. 
  • Works on paper must be under glass (Not Plastic).
  • Plastic clip frames, Table frames (with leaning back), and document frames will no longer be accepted in the gallery. Don't use them. 
  • Framed items must include a taught wire properly fastened to the top quarter of the frame back. 
  • Artwork framed using sawtooth hangars, triangle hangars, and holes as part of the frame will be rejected.
  • Loose wires or wired below the top quarter will be rejected. If you can see the wire above the frame it's wrong.
