Month of December plus an Evening Reception
Downtown Salem Businesses

Something Red is AiA’s crown-jewel (a ruby!) event. This juried exhibit has evolved and gained notoriety over the years. All submitted artwork, of any medium or style, must incorporate RED as a focal point or primary color in the composition.

Elsinore Gallery, 444 Ferry St. SE, hosts a majority of the works as well as the artists’ reception and awards ceremony. Select downtown Salem businesses also display the highly artistic pieces at their locations during December; in 2019, those included:
• Roy John Designer Goldsmith @ 315 Court St NE
• Wild Pear Restaurant @ 372 State St NE
• Ritter’s Housemade Foods @ 102 Liberty St NE
