You are invited to participate in “Hooked on the Salmon River,” a themed exhibition that celebrates fishing and the beauty of the Salmon River. The exhibit was developed to feature work from the region’s fine artists inspired by this beautiful and swift-flowing river that runs through the small historic village of Pulaski drawing fishermen, nature enthusiasts and tourists from all over the globe. All styles and genres of fine art and fine craft will be accepted from both emerging and established artists 18 and older. Artwork must have been completed in the last two years and will be selected by talented local artist Lawrence C. Barone. The exhibit will be on display from August 28 through October 14 at the Salmon River Fine Arts Center. Please read the Art Exhibition Prospectus for detailed information on guidelines and requirements, awards announcement, entry procedure, juror bio, and entry form and tags.

Please note: all work will also be on display and for sale (if applicable) in our online market. Should the gallery still be closed due to Covid-19, all events and award ceremonies will take place virtually.
