About AIA


Salem Area Artists - Finding, sharing and creating new opportunities

Artists in Action is a nonprofit group of diverse, dedicated artists and artisans working to create stronger ties with each other and the communities of the Salem area.

Members share their achievements, ideas, inspirations, and opportunities for artists to develop, show and/or sell their work. Members participate in a variety of activities to ensure that their work becomes a visible part of life in the community.

Artists in Action is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) charitable organization.

Monthly Meetings

Monthly Meetings are held on the third Tuesday of each month at 6:00 PM with the actual meeting starting at 6:30 PM. The only exception are the months of August and December. In August we have our annual picnic and in December there is no meeting.

Meetings are designed to include a topic of discussion and sharing of information that is of interest to artist members, and intended to educate and inspire creativity. Art shows and local cultural events are announced and made available to members, providing opportunities to show art, get involved in the community, and develop a greater awareness of art and culture in the Salem area.

Feel free to visit a monthly meeting and decide if this group is for you. Contact us for more information at:

TIME/DATE: 6:30 PM, third Tuesday of each month at 1300 Broadway St. NE, Salem, OR 97301. The Broadway Commons, Mexico Room (RM 304). Please plan to arrive a bit early (6:00 pm) for some social time and help with setting up the meeting.


Membership is $25 per year for individuals, and $45 for families. Membership entitles you to participate in group shows, be individually listed with your contact information on the AiA website and vote at monthly meetings.
