We will be promoting all the different locations where art by local artists can be viewed in the downtown during the Salem Arts Festival. We will also have a stipend of up to $250 for the first 8 participating partner galleries to help offset the costs (hanging art, printing labels/programs, etc.). We just need to know a little bit about your plans.

We STRONGLY encourage each Partner Gallery to hold a gallery opening or special gallery event before the Arts Festival during the (new!) Salem Art Days – May 22 to June 2. There is so much happening the weekend of the Festival, and we want to be sure that every Partner Gallery has its own moment to shine! We are hoping a lineup of staggered openings/events during Salem Art Days will give us the opportunity to brand and promote these each as standalone events – and give the organizers an opportunity to be part of your celebration, since we are usually too busy the weekend of the festival! Feel free to contact kylie@salemmainstreets.org to discuss the best dates.
