With a strong tradition of artistic excellence since 1919, the Salem Art Association enriches the cultural fabric of our community. From contemporary art exhibits at Bush Barn Art Center, decorative and historic art at the Bush House Museum, public cultural programs and school programs to the annual Salem Art Fair & Festival, SAA’s many activities foster creativity and appreciation for the arts in our local community.

Salem Art Association’s (SAA) Artists Services Program is revitalizing its Artists in Residence Program. This program aims to serve professional artists by providing a flexible space for artistic development.

While not the primary focus of the AIR, SAA asks that each artist engage with our local community in some way during the residency. Please include in your proposal which areas might be of interest to you.

Who Can Apply

All artists, including literary, visual, and performing artists. Please submit a description of a clearly defined project. SAA may or may not consider artists particularly complementary to an occurring SAA exhibit.

SAA is open year-round.


Length of each residency may vary from four to six weeks. Please state specific dates of preference.

Spring Artist in Residence (between March 15 and April 30) deadline January 15, 2014

Fall Artist in Residence (between October 15 and December 15) deadline August 15, 2014
