Call for Artists opportunities for the Bush Barn Art Center and the Annex take place throughout the year. See below for a current list of ways to get your art out into the world through the Salem Art Association. If you have questions, please contact our gallery staff by calling 503-581-2228 or sending an e-mail to galleries@SalemArt.org.
Juried exhibitions are those where art is selected according to merit by a juror or jurors. In Non-Juried exhibitions all art is accepted as long as it meets the criteria of the call for artists.
RENTAL SALES PROGRAM & GIFT GALLERY (JURIED)
The Rental-Sales Program and the Gift Gallery of the Salem Art Association (SAA) are consignment venues at the Bush Barn Art Center for local, regional, and Pacific Northwest artists to display, rent and sell their work. There is no fee to submit work for consideration.
CALL FOR GUEST CURATORS (JURIED)
The Salem Art Association invites professionally affiliated and independent guest curators to submit proposals for exhibitions to be held in the A.N Bush Gallery at the Bush Barn Art Center. Exhibitions are typically in six to eight week increments. There is no fee to submit work for consideration.
The Salem Art Association (SAA) is offering several categories as part of the 2017 Artist-in-Residence (AIR) program in the newly renovated Annex. As a multi-purpose space, the Annex features a dedicated studio space for a year-round Artist-in-Residence program, and a main space for art workshops, exhibitions, classes and other programming which will evolve with the needs of the community. The mission of the Annex is to provide an experimental space for learning about, making, and showing art.
