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 hosts a majority of the works as well as the artists’ reception and awards ceremony. Select downtown Salem businesses also display the varied and highly artistic pieces at their locations during December.

The Call Has Closed

This year’s Something Red Call has closed (11/9). Thank you to all artists, both members and non-members, who submitted entries. Our Juror-Judge, Jeff Hall, will be reviewing the artwork over the next week and entrants will be notified of acceptance by midnight November 16.

New this year: The Something Red Call was managed via ArtCall is a secure on-line portal (application) that offers a streamlined process for all aspects of call-for-entry management including entry fee payments. Artists, administrators and jurors all benefit from a single-point of access. Participants who registered on ArtCall’s website for this Call can simply log in for future juried exhibits—both AiA’s and other calls ‘out there’.
