    Hi all, 

    I just wanted to post a note to all members that we haven't forgotten about you... 

    This year, we have planned for FOUR exhibitions. 

    Our two online exhibitions will be the International Open Online coming soon and the third annual All-Member Online coming at the end of the year. We are changing these two shows to have ISAP cash awards only and moving all sponsor awards to our physical exhibition.

    We also welcome the return of our physical exhibitions! 

    The first will be our Signatures and Masters Exhibition being held at the Cathy Kline Gallery in Parkville, Missouri Opening July 2nd. The second will be the return of our International Open Physical exhibition at the Dunnegan Gallery in Bolivar, MO (former host of the National Oil and Acrylic Painters Society Best of America exhibitions) opening in October. Both physical exhibitions will have award receptions at the opening. 

    We are currently in the process of selecting jurors for all shows and soliciting award donations from our sponsors for the physical shows.

     Stay tuned for the calls...
