Rental-Sales Program & Gift Gallery Artist Applications
The Rental-Sales Program and the Gift Gallery of the Salem Art Association (SAA) are consignment venues at the Bush Barn Art Center for regional artists to display, rent and sell their work. Art rentals and sales support both the artists and SAA’s educational programs. For these venues, salability is a top priority, creative approaches are always valued, and superior craftsmanship is a necessity. Our clientele shops in the Gift Gallery year-round for fine art, fine craft, functional crafts and handmade gift items by Pacific Northwest artists. Many art sales are also made through our Rent-to-Buy program, which allows qualified customers the opportunity to rent work of art for three months, after which they may apply the rental fee to the purchase price with the artist receiving a commission on both. Additionally, we have a select number of corporate rental accounts.
