Oil Painters of America Convention


Oil Painters of America’s 26th National Juried Exhibition & Convention is in Cincinnati this year, and they’d like to invite all artists in the area to attend their opening weekend convention, an event filled with art appreciation, education and peer networking.

Events begin on Wednesday, May 10 with a two-day wet paint competition with awards for both studio and plein air divisions. The convention will run through Sunday, May 14.  Everyone is invited to participate in the wet paint competition and experience the many demos and events that will take place throughout the opening weekend.  You do NOT need to be an OPA member to attend the events or participate in the competition; although, registration is required.
