SAAG Gallery Guideline:

1.  All artwork must be for sale and be your original work. The Gallery Floor and/or Merchandiser Manager has the final decision on acceptance of work or its removal. All work must meet the SAAG Gallery standards.

2.  The Gallery Merchandiser Team will make the decision of placement of your art based on the current artists and new applicants. The Gallery Merchandiser must be contacted before bringing replacement pieces.

3.  All inventory sheets must follow the same numbering system for all artists which is 1, 2, 3, etc. (numerical order) with no alpha included in numbering system with exception of the “A” in front of the artist number. Example: INV#000-A00. This information must be on every item and on wall tags printed on card stock for 2D wall pieces.  The inventory sheet and wall tag template can be printed through your Square Point of Sale account. A Gmail account is required to connect to this   inventory management system.  All inventory sheets are newly submitted each session and will remain the property of the SAAG Gallery. Artists should keep a copy of the inventory sheets for their personal use

4.  Artists must price their work in whole dollar amounts. All artists are responsible to pay taxes on their own sales.  

5.  Artists will be trained on the job by artists working on their scheduled day.

6.  Each artist will work 3 to 4 half shifts per month as specified in the SAAG Policies and Procedures. Shifts will vary between 4 and 5 hours dependent on store hours.

7.  If a member is not cooperative or is disrespectful towards other artists, the Gallery Management Team has authority to make decisions regarding continuance in the Gallery. The Executive Board may get involved if necessary.

8.  All artists are required to work their assigned shifts. If there is an emergency/illness you may trade shifts or negotiate a fee with an artist in your category to work your shift. If management team has to find a replacement, you will be responsible for paying the replacement a minimum $10 per hour fee. Any long term situations can be worked out with the Scheduling Manager.
