AiA’s Signature Events & Exhibitions

Some 2020 public events have been canceled due to covid-19. But, the art must go on so we’ve made adjustments to some of our programs. See event pages for details on each.

We just wrapped Spring Reign, AiA’s inaugural springtime art exhibit. Other signature AiA events/exhibitions include Something Red and Paint the Town. In summer, you’ll find our booth at World Beat Festival adorned with member art; and be sure to see the fantastically quirky Outside the Box exhibit & silent auction during the Salem Arts Festival in July. CCTV invites AiA Members to adorn their halls come November. Spinnaker Place, a modern professional building in Salem, hosts rotating Artists in Action works on its five floors.


Current Calls to Artists

Paint the Town / Write the Town

The Schedule and Call to Artists is ready for this year’s Paint the Town / Write the Town en plein air event and exhibit — an AiA summertime tradition.

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.
