We are thrilled to announce that "Gold Elephant" has been accepted into the Oil Painters of America's 2007 Eastern Regional Exhibition of Traditional Oils!
There are only about 100 pieces accepted into this show from member artists who reside in the 26 states and 5 Canadian provinces which make up the OPA's eastern region. Membership into Oil Painters of America is itself juried - the member roles read as a who's who of fine art. To make the cut into the regional show is a tremendous accomplishment!
The exhibition will hang at the beautiful Weatherburn Gallery in Naples, Florida from November 24 to January 5, 2008, opening with a gala champagne reception on Saturday the 24th.
Oil Painters of America hosts four intensely competitive exhibitions per year - three regionals and one national. Within their relatively short 16 year history, the organization has become a gathering place for the best artists in the field. They are, as their website declares, "dedicated to the preservation of representational art."
