Purchase or Rent

SAM Gallery has artwork available in all price ranges for purchase or three-month rentals. This unique "rent-before-you-buy" approach is exclusively for SAM members and allows you to live with a favorite piece before you make a purchase. Half of your rental fee goes toward your purchase if you keep the work; easy 16-month interest-free payment plans are available for SAM members. ​If you don't have a membership, you can sign up on the spot to enjoy all of these member benefits.

Enjoy Regular Exhibitions

Throughout the year, SAM Gallery presents regular shows and opening receptions where you can meet local artists and be the first to preview new works. Check the SAM events calendar for a current listing of exhibitions and events.
