Something Red Call to Artists & December Exhibition

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

Elsinore Gallery, 444 Ferry St. SE, hosts the majority of the works as well as a virtual gallery on their website. Select downtown Salem businesses also display the highly artistic pieces at their locations during December.
