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.

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 â€ścelebration 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.

*Only SLC Arts members may participate. If you are not yet a member of SLC Arts, it's easy to join online: http://slcartscouncil.org/join-renew-give/.

Booth Fee: $50.00 (if your application is accepted) + SLC Arts Membership
This form is only for artists who participated in Artists' Studio Tour in 2016. Please remember the increased emphasis on offering a component that helps educate the public about your creative process (such as a display or demonstration).

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. 

SLC Arts offers a variety of classes for community members, taught by local artists and art teachers, in downtown Potsdam, NY (here).

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.
