“Something Red” Call to Artists & December Exhibition

Something Red is AiA’s crown jewel annual event! We are looking forward to our Something Red 20th Anniversary in 2022. We call on Oregon visual artists, working in any style or medium, to create compelling art that features true RED as a focal point or primary color in the composition. The resulting exhibition is a perennial favorite of our local art community and is held during December at Elsinore Framing & Fine Art Gallery in downtown Salem. To receive email messages about Something Red and other AiA news, join our mailing list.


Something Red 2021 is a Wrap

Thank you artists, patrons and organizers for your contributions in making our 19th annual Something Red event a fabulous success. We had a great turnout, saw some new faces in the fray and got to display a fantastic range of interesting art. The show was again hosted by Elsinore Framing & Fine Art Gallery, 444 Ferry St SE.

About the ArtCall Platform (Registration Site)

AiA manages its Calls to Artists using the ArtCall platform. ArtCall.org is a distinctly separate site from the AiA website and requires registering for an ArtCall account to participate. You only need to register once; then simply log in for all future AiA calls. Please note, each “official” Call has its own unique web address (URL) which is your starting point to view the call details and participate. Using ArtCall provides an easy way for artists to pay the entry fee and submit images and descriptions of their art and provides AiA agents with an effective way to manage all aspects of the call including fee payments and jury process.
