    Welcome to the new and improved ISAP-ONLINE website! We've updated the look and navigation, including all navigation from the old site. We've also integrated Wild Apricot, our membership site, into the website with single-signon so you can join, manage your membership profile, pay your dues, and look up fellow members all without leaving the website.

    The galleries from 2015 through the most recent show are available on the website. Soon, all historical shows and their images will be available here on the new site.

    Take a look around and send us your feedback. We'd love to hear from you!

    A new recognition category was recently added to the International Society of Acrylic Painters to recognize our “Best of the Best”. This category is Signature Master. This recognition program was designed based on the American Watercolor Society’s Dolphin Fellowship and is based on merit.

    Signature Master status is achieved when an active signature member has attained 10 points through award recognition in our exhibitions. Any of the Society’s exhibitions juried by a juror of awards is eligible. The points are earned as follows:

    Best of Show – 5 points

    First Place – 4 points

    Second Place – 3 points

    Third Place – 2 points

    Any other award – 1 point

    In some of our earlier exhibitions, some paintings were awarded both Best of Show and First Place. To be fair, these paintings were awarded 5 points for best of show.

    As with Signature status, a Signature Master keeps his or her status as long as his or her dues remain current. After a one year lapse in dues, the member loses both Signature Master status and Signature status. Should dues be renewed after losing status, the process of earning Signature status and Signature Master status begins again. As long as the member remains a Signature Master, he or she is allowed to use the title on all correspondence and paintings with either ISAP M or ISAP Master after his or her name.

    I'm proud to announce our first class of Signature Master members and their point status through our most recent exhibition, the 8th Annual ISAP International Open Online Exhibition:

    Dan Simoneau – 17 points

    Barbara Leites – 14 points

    Angela Bandurka – 13 points

    Gerard Huber – 13 points

    Denise Athanas – 12 points

    Pat Cairns – 11 points

    Vi Gassman – 10 points

    Congratulations to all!
