Listing Submissions

The newsletter is sent out on Tuesday mornings. Submissions are due by 5pm Sunday evenings. Submissions received after 5pm on Sunday will be included in the following week's newsletter. Listings are free!

This newsletter is focused on the visual arts in the Pioneer Valley, so there are only two criteria for submissions:

  1. Visual arts-related
  2. Pioneer Valley area *

* Pioneer Valley is Hampshire, Hampden, and Franklin counties of western Massachusetts.

PLEASE NOTE: listings are NOT ads. To purchase a banner ad, please visit the Advertising page for more information.

Featured Listings! Your event at the top!

Have your listing featured at the top of the listings, the first listing readers see! This top-billing is first-come first-serve, and you may reserve in advance. Prices (per issue): $25 for the top spot, $20 for the second spot (right below the top spot) See below for details and available dates.

Listings policies:

as of September 2016

HOW TO SUBMIT A LISTING: Email submissions to art@valleyartsnewsletter.com, and include the following info below (where applicable), depending on the type of submission. An easy way is to copy the appropriate list below, paste into an email, and fill in the details.

Please note that I do not post listings for business services, jobs, or real estate. Please consider purchasing an ad for this purpose. Ads run for four weeks and cost between $15 to $70 depending on size and placement (10% discount for a year-long ad). Great rates!

Non-visual arts submissions: The newsletter is only visual arts at this time. I do this as a one-person volunteer labor-of-love, and putting it together each week is time-consuming. Film/video art installations are welcome, and I will occassionally list film/video events at my discretion, but non-"art" films will probably not be listed. (I know film is a visual medium, but then we get into the whole "What is Art" debate, and in this newsletter I make the rules ;)

Please don't send your listing as an image only, or flattened PDF. It's too time-consuming to decipher and type out text information contained in an image. This kind of submission will no longer be accepted.

If you add me to your arts organization's mailing list, thank you, but I won't extract listings from email newsletters (too much information to sift through, and I get a lot of newsletters!) - please send me anything you'd like to list separately.
