The National Oil & Acrylic Painters’ Society (NOAPS) is presenting its 5th Best of America Small Works National Juried Exhibition at Beverly McNeil Gallery in Birmingham.

On view are 175 works — all measuring 320 square inches or smaller — created by artists from around the world.

The opening week kicked off with a plein air paint-out and competition, followed by the awards presentation and opening reception.

Later, master artists Paula Holtzclaw and Bill Farnsworth will demonstrate their techniques in the gallery.

NOAPS was founded 31 years ago by a group of enthusiastic artists and arts advocates including James Baumgartner, Betty Fitzgerald, Kenneth Gerardy, Martha Mitchell, William R. Mitchell, Joseph Orr, Rita Orr, Pete Peterson, Donald Ruthenberg, and Dennis T. Yates.
