SaskGalleries (the Saskatchewan Professional Art Galleries Association) is a not-for-profit, member-based organization that represents Saskatchewan commercial art galleries who sell the art of local, national, and international artists, including more than 400 Saskatchewan artists. The mandate of SaskGalleries is:
An association to promote, develop and
encourage the growth of Saskatchewan
professional commercial art galleries
who exhibit and sell original works
of Saskatchewan art.
When a customer visits a SaskGalleries member gallery, they know that they are dealing with a commercial gallery that:
Represents professional artists whose art practice is their full-time job
Pays the artists properly based on standard payment principles
Prices the art fairly and in-line with national standards
Is knowledgeable about the art and artists they carry
Is an established business
There are four inclusive membership categories that include full members, associate members, affiliates, and honourary members. Full members are professional commercial art galleries in Saskatchewan and Associate members are emerging commercial art galleries, artist collectives, businesses and organizations, or Fine Art and Fine Craft retails in Saskatchewan. Affiliate memberships are available to all individuals and institutions that contribute to the success of the commercial art market in Saskatchewan. Finally, Honourary members are those who have made significant past contributions to the development of SaskGalleries.
