Sorrel Sky Gallery is hosting the Oil Painters of America 2019 Western Regional Juried Exhibition of Traditional Oils. An exhibition and sale of works by both award winners and all other participants will continue through November 30, 2019.
Oil Painters of America (OPA) was founded in 1991 and now boasts over 3,600 members from across North America. The 2019 Western Regional Exhibition of the OPA features artists from Alaska to Arizona, Saskatchewan to Hawaii, British Columbia to all of Mexico. The goal of the OPA is to assemble the ﬁnest display of representational oil paintings. The focus in the jurying process is to select paintings that show the highest quality in draftsmanship, color, and composition, emphasizing a diversity in representational style and subject matter.
Approximately 100 artists of 1,200 will be selected to be part of this exhibition. Total awards will be approximately $11,500 in cash and merchandise. Nationally recognized OPA artist Kathryn Stats will serve as the juror of awards. Kathryn’s own work reﬂects her desire to stay curious and explore new locations. “I try not to get too comfortable working in a particular size or subject matter because I feel that comfort leads to staleness. For this reason, I’m always looking for fresh territory.”
