HOW TO JOIN OUR GALLERY
We are an artists’ cooperative gallery, located on the ground floor of the Salt Lake City Main Library. Our mission is to promote public interest in high quality, original artwork while providing Utah artists, who do not already have an established exhibition venue, with an audience and an opportunity to sell their work. The co-op also supports and provides art educational programs for the public.
Art at the Main welcomes applications from new artists with original artwork in these media: mixed media, watercolor, oil, acrylic, pastel, pen & ink, pencil, charcoal, encaustic, etchings, monotypes, lithography, hangable fiber art, and small 3-D sculpture, glasswork, pottery, metal and wood.
