Spring Eternal Call to Artists & Exhibition

Each spring presents a fresh artistic challenge and April exhibit. AiA’s inaugural springtime call and exhibit was titled “Spring Reign.” For our second annual event, we asked artists to create up to three works inspired by the phrase, “Spring Eternal.” The resulting art exhibition was held at Elsinore Gallery, 444 Ferry St SE, in downtown Salem during April 2021.

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.
