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.

The Spring Eternal exhibition featured 31 artists and more than 70 works of art. Not to worry if you didn’t get to see the April exhibit in person, it’ll live here on the internet for a while so you can browse at your leisure.
