The American Artists Professional League (AAPL) is dedicated to recognizing, encouraging, and promoting traditional, representational art. The AAPL has announced its plans for a 90th Grand National Exhibition. Each year, this show highlights major and emerging professional artists in all media. Entries are accepted from all 50 states as well as internationally and judged by a selection committee consisting of professional artists. The nonprofit AAPL has been devoted to the cause of fine arts in America since 1928.

“The AAPL is dedicated to encouraging and promoting traditional, realistic art,” said Peter Rossi. “We are extremely proud to recognize some of America’s finest artists whose work exemplifies the quality of art that our organization strives to support.”

This year, the AAPL’s 90th Anniversary show will be held at the Salmagundi Club Galleries (New York, New York). The exhibition will be on display November 11–19, 2018. A reception and awards ceremony will be held on Sunday, November 18.
