Fine Art Up North is an annual calendar published by SLC Arts showcasing the work of North Country artists. Artists are invited to submit up to three images for consideration by a panel of jurors for inclusion in the calendar; a maximum of one image per artist will be published in the calendar. Submissions may include high quality images of 3-dimensional artwork. Artists must be current SLC Arts members or join at the time of submission (purchase a $25 basic membership here).
Our local customers frequently purchase our calendar to give as gifts
to relatives and friends who live outside the North Country region. When
selecting landscapes and other scenes depicting outdoor life, we will
give preference to images which evoke the spirit of life in this region.

The Village of Canton and the St. Lawrence County Arts Council work together every fall to present the Art Show & Sale as part of the Remington Arts Festival, a “celebration of art excellence in the North Country." Artists who create high quality art and fine crafts are invited to apply for booth space in this juried show. This is a wonderful opportunity to show and sell your work to visitors from around the region. The Remington Festival includes a variety of musical and historical programs, and coincides with Family Weekend at St. Lawrence University, which brings in many parents from across the country.
Booth spaces are 12' x 12' outdoors on the Village Green in Canton. In inclement weather, all artists’ booths may be shifted indoors; indoor spaces may be irregular and smaller than 12' x 12'.
Artists must supply their own display equipment, tables, chairs, etc. Tables should be covered to the ground. Tents or canopies are encouraged, but not required. Set up begins at 7:00 am. The show is officially open from 10:00am - 4:00pm, but artists may stay longer if they wish. All items on display and for sale must be original work or reproductions from the artist's original designs.
Booth Fee: $50.00 (if your application is accepted) + SLC Arts Membership

About The Community Gallery Project:
The Community Gallery Project is a program to create art gallery spaces in non-traditional venues such as restaurants, libraries, retail stores, and even yoga studios and airports. The Community Gallery Project has traditionally focused on venues in Potsdam and now currently is expanding out into the greater St. Lawrence County area.
We are always seeking artists and businesses who are interested in participating in the spring and fall Community Gallery Project. If you are an interested artist or business, please submit a form.
There is a waiver to be completed by each artist wishing to participate in the SLC Arts' Community Gallery program. It is the responsibility of the artist, if desired, to carry insurance that covers the artwork exhibited.
All sales are handled directly by the artist.
These artists are independent contractors, working around their own availability on a temporary, short-term basis.

- Strong computer skills are very important to the work we do. On a daily basis, our employees use Gmail, Google Drive, Google Calendar, DonorSnap, WordPress, HootSuite & other social media platforms, submittable.com, and QuickBooks.
- We are a small, close-knit team and everyone is expected to pitch in. This means that sometimes the Director sweeps the Dance Studio floor after an event, the Graphic Designer picks up the office supply order, the Program Coordinator sets up chairs for a meeting, and so on.
- How you behave in the community reflects on the organization as a whole. The strong relationship we have with individuals and organizations in our community is our greatest asset, and as an employee your image impacts our image.
- We have a sense of humor. It's how we stay sane in a fast-paced office while multi-tasking and trying to meet deadlines.
