Inspire. Be inspired.

Artists in Action is a diverse and inclusive group of emerging, mid-career and established visual artists who encourage those of all skill levels and mediums to come together to share their passion for art and their techniques with other members and the communities of the Willamette Valley where we live. We are a nonprofit organization that has successfully operated for nearly two decades.

Among us are artists working in drawing and painting, sculpture, textiles and fabric arts, assemblage, ceramics and glass, as well as photography, digital media and print making. You are invited to mingle with kindred spirits at our monthly meetings which feature club activities and art-centric topics to inspire creativity and educate.

Spring Reign Art Reception & Exhibit

NOTICE: The April 1 Artist Reception at Elsinore Gallery has been cancelled and the exhibit can be seen by appointment only. You know why. In lieu of the opening event, we are working on a special project to celebrate the inaugural exhibition and the award-winning artists in a more ‘virtual’ way. Our judge, Pam Serra-Wenz, has viewed and critiqued the artwork in person and assigned the awards.

We are hoping to bring you a video reception on April 1, but a delay is possible. Stay tuned… In the meantime, Elsinore Gallery has put the Spring Reign artwork on their website. Be sure to visit, see the art and cast your vote for People’s Choice!
