Photographing Your Artwork

We request that artists submit artwork information along with photos for online use in our shop and social media using our online form or email photos with a copy of your forms to Gallery@SalemArts.org . 

Salem Arts now has an online shop. Appropriate inventory will be included online if we receive good quality photos of your work. See the Salem Arts Online Shop for examples of what looks best. 

    • Images should be square.
    • Most smart phones or digital cameras will make sufficient images using the square photo option.
    • Background should be neutral or dark color, White, Grey or Black are preferred. 
    • If your items are framed include the frame in your image so people can see what they're buying
    • Name your files with your inventory ID or initials that corresponds to each item. Append with A, B, C when submitting multiple images (up to three) for each item. e.g. ABC-123.
    • Size should be greater than 1800 pixels wide or tall
    • file format must be JPG (JPEG), or PNG
    • Focus on framed artwork, jewelry, clothing, 3D items such as ceramics, glass, sculpture, etc. Cards and matted prints will not be made available online

For tips on photographing your work here's a few helpful links.

Artwork Presentation MUST adhere to our framing guidelines for acceptance.
