Here's the official answer from the tech help at submittable.com regarding  Dropbox issues: "Yes, with smartphones and tablets, users are required to upload their documents from Dropbox. They will be prompted to create a Dropbox account if they don't already have one that they are logged into. The account is free and is the smartphone/tablet alternative since these devices cannot be browsed to attach files."

If you are selling your work directly to customers (for example, in a booth space at a festival), you must have your own NYS Sales Tax ID #. Learn more at: http://www.tax.ny.gov/pubs_and_bulls/tg_bulletins/st/how_to_register_for_nys_sales_tax.htm. If you are selling your work through a Gallery Show with SLC Arts, we handle sales and sales tax on purchases.

We want your images for our #ThrowbackThursday and #FlashbackFriday features on our social media streams. Show community members and other artists how your creative work has evolved and changed over the years by selecting images of work you produced years ago contrasted with images of your current work.
SLC Arts is a small non-profit organization, based in Potsdam, NY, working to build creative community capacity in St. Lawrence and neighboring counties. While we do not have any positions open currently, we like to retain resumes on file in case of future openings. If a position opens that is suited to your experience and skills, we will contact you.

Things you should know about our work environment:
  • 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.
