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 is held at Elsinore Gallery in downtown Salem during the month of April.


Spring Eternal Art Exhibit Open, April 3–30

There’s nothing like viewing art in person where you can really get a sense of the creativity and details that were put into the creations. See it live, thru the end of April, at Elsinore Framing & Fine Art Gallery, 444 Ferry St SE, downtown Salem OR. Wear your mask. Limit 10 in the gallery at a time. Business Hours: MON-FRI 9:00-6:00, SAT 10:00-5:00. They will also feature all artwork in a virtual gallery on their website, and artwork will be available for sale online (unless NFS). While visiting the gallery, whether in person or on line, be sure to cast your vote for People’s Choice!
