Saltwater Artists Gallery, an artists’ cooperative located across from the Bradley Inn at Pemaquid Point in New Harbor, is now accepting applications for membership.

SWAG consists of a diverse group of artists and artisans currently working in a variety of media, including painting, pastel, graphics, photography, sculpture, ceramics, fiber arts, stained glass, woodwork and jewelry.

SWAG membership provides not only excellent sales opportunities, but also interaction with a supportive community of artists and artisans. Membership responsibilities include attendance of occasional meetings; participation in gallery operations and events; and payment of dues and exhibition fees.

Applicants’ work will be juried Jan. 30 in the Damariscotta/Newcastle area. Drop-off will be 10 a.m. to noon, and pick-up 4 to 6 p.m. Applicants should plan to bring three representative pieces of their art; a CD containing jpgs of 10 additional works; and a resume’ plus artist’s statement.
