Each entry is reviewed and scored by an independent jury panel. The Jurying panel will consist of a minimum of 5 NOAPS Master Artists or Signature Members. The panel selects paintings for the exhibit based on the quality and individual mastery of the medium.

Requests relating to artist’s information or sales will be forwarded to the artist.

The National Oil and Acrylic Painters’ Society was organized for the purpose of “governing, administering, and maintaining such activities as will provide a national forum and standard of excellence in which artists can fully express the media of oil and acrylic on canvas and panel.”

Focusing on the emerging artist, rather than the well known painters who have already gained acceptance in the Visual Fine Arts industry, the NOAPSociety has continued to encourage these extremely talented artists. This philosophy has served well during two plus decades of steady growth as evidenced by its tremendous appeal to not only the art connoisseur, but also to the general public which persists in its relentless quest of “The Best!”
