Our Annual Shows

Every year we feature the following fine arts shows, which provide opportunities for our members, established artists, non professional artists, local junior high and high school students, and the community at large. Our commitment to these annual shows helps to achieve our mission “to enrich and educate our community through sharing and displaying fine arts in our gallery space . . .”

For an overview of all our Fine Arts Center activities, check out our Month-by-Month Calendar.

Our annual 6 x 6 Community Art Show is a fundraiser for our community arts center, and everyone is invited to participate. As the show name implies, each entry is 6-inches x 6-inches in size. All art submitted is donated to the center and is for sale for $15 each. All sales benefit the Salmon River Fine Arts Center. All members of the community are invited to participate, all art is hung anonymously, and there is no entry fee. For the month before the show we offer classes focusing on 6 x 6 artwork.
