NOAPSwishes to share our excitement and expectationsabout our 2017 events with our Members,Exhibit Sponsors and Patrons
Showcasing Our Members Since 1991Membership and participation in our events come from all around the world. NOAPS is the leading art society in North America offering membership to both oil and acrylic artists. For nearly 27 years, NOAPS has been showcasing the incredible talent of both oil and acrylic artists. Our annual ‘Best of America’ truly attracts some of the best artists from all across North America. In addition to our annual exhibit we offer two On-Line International Exhibits each year: welcoming oil and acrylic artists from all around the globe. These exhibits are exposing some amazing styles and subject matter. We communicate with members and potential members through our website: www.noaps.org and social media: Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest and our NOAPS Blog with which we promote our members and generous Exhibit Award Sponsors. Many of our Award Sponsors have been helping us grow since our founding in 1991 and our list is growing every year which is a major contributor to our continuous and substantial success.Our Sponsor’s Application Form is provided and can be viewed at:www.noaps.org/html/sponsorform.html Master & Signature ShowsArtist members may achieve the Signature and Master status through their participation and acceptance in our annual National exhibit: The Best of America. Artists that achieve the Signature and/or Master status are invited to participate in a unique show for the Best of the Best. Cash Awards and Merchandise certificates are also part of this prestigious event.
The Online International ExhibitsOur Online International Exhibits have been a great way to show artists' work in oil and acrylic from around the world since 2013. These exhibits offer a great alternative for the artists that can not or do not wish to ship their art to a gallery for exhibition. They also appeal to the artist since there are no restrictions on the size of the painting. Inquires for potential sales are referred directly to the artist and no commission is taken. NOAPS Onlines are a great way to achieve recognition, exposure, and promotion through our website and social media. Another unique characteristic of NOAPS Online Exhibits is that a total of 150 entries are accepted and promoted giving the opportunity to a greater number of artists to be recognized. Not only the 150 images are displayed in our website but also the artists' websites are included as an additional benefit. Up to 30 awards serve as an incentive and a source for recognition. Promotion of the art does not stop at notification date but it continues in our social media and even through major art publications. All accepted art 2013 to current can be seen in our Previous Exhibitions Page. Two Online ExhibitsThere are two NOAPS Online International Exhibits: Spring and Fall. Entries for the Spring usually start by the middle of January, and entries for the Fall start in August.
Workshops and Other ActivitiesNOAPS sponsors and helps to promote workshops through our NOAPS Grant Program. The artist applies for the grant and NOAPS will contribute to the advertising cost. In addition to our Sponsored Workshops, NOAPS provides the opportunity to all current members to promote their local workshops or Plein Air Events in our own website
