Something Red 2023 Gallery of Exhibited Art, Event Video and Awards

2023’s Something Red exhibition is shaping up to be a wonderful success. Thank you to Elsinore Gallery, our patrons, organizers and all participating artists who are making it so. We finished the art call with 120 red-centric works of art submitted by 52 local artists. Enjoy browsing the gallery of exhibited art now and then watch the event video, when it comes out after the awards presentation, which will include an awards presentation by the event judge, John Van Dreal, and see who the award recipients are. You can also come to the opening reception at the Elsinore Framing and Fine Art Gallery in downtown Salem, Oregon on Friday December 1st starting at 5:00 PM with awards being presented at 5:15 PM.
