Help Support The ArtSalon

The ArtSalon is a 501c3 non-profit (administered by A.P.E. Ltd). We operate on a shoestring budget and volunteer our time. The Administrator & Communications Coordinator receives a stipend for each salon; and we often give a small stipend to our host venues. We have no fixed office space, we organize ArtSalons from our personal computers and informal meetings.

What propels us is a passion for art, a delight in the sheer number of amazingly talented artists in the valley, and a strong belief in the community-building power of the arts. Through our fundraising events RedDotDash and individuals like you, we are now able to support our presenting artists with a small honorarium at each ArtSalon. Thank you.

We rely entirely on grants and donations to sustain these popular events. If you or your organization would like to make a donation, please use PayPal via the “Donate” button below, or contact us directly for more information.

Our supporters have included The Berry Family Foundation, Silverscape Designs, The Art Angels through the Community Foundation, Fierst, Kane, Bloomberg, LLP, Greenfield Savings Bank, Florence Savings Bank, The Community Foundation, anonymous donors, and local cultural councils. We are grateful for their generous support, and for the donations from hundreds of individuals who have attended ArtSalons.
