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. AiA hosts several signature events and calls to artists each year and participates in other art events at the local level. 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.
