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.

Outside the Box is a GO!

While you’re inside your box, make something for Outside the Box. It’s unfortunate that July’s Salem Arts Festival has been cancelled so we won’t be in our usual booth, but that shouldn’t stop us from making awesomely creative boxes for our most popular fundraiser and AiA tradition.

Member Galleries

AiA’s Member Gallery Pages are great way to see our members’ artwork. Each artist’s on-line gallery showcases up to ten works of art, an artist statement and links to their site(s). We hope you enjoy browsing the galleries as much as we enjoy making the art.
