The ArtSalon’s fiscal sponsor is A.P.E. Ltd, a 501c3 non-profit arts organization. The ArtSalon operates on a shoestring budget and we volunteer our time. The Communications Coordinator and Administrator receives a stipend for each salon; and we provide a small stipend to our host venues and presenting artists. We have no fixed office space, organizing the 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.
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.
We’re proud to have received support from:
The Massachusetts Cultural Council Local Cultural Councils
The Community Foundation of Western Massachusetts
The Berry Family Foundation,
Fierst, Kane, Bloomberg, LLP,
Greenfield Savings Bank,
Florence Savings Bank,
And hundreds of individual donors and attendees to the ArtSalons.
And to Bronwen Hodgkinson who has contributed her expertise and talents all along the way.
