his March, the Oil Painters of America
announced a new exhibition celebrating some
of the best artists in representational painting. The
show, Virtuosos of the OPA, features artwork by its
members who have achieved Signature and Master
Signature distinctions through the group’s rigorous
vetting process. The artists who have submitted
pieces, and had their works juried for the exhibition,
represent just a small cross-section of the talent that
is found in the organization.
On view at Cutter & Cutter Fine Art in St. Augustine,
Florida, will be more than 150 paintings by these
renowned artists who will compete for approximately
$10,000 in cash and merchandise as selected by juror
of awards Daniel Greene, who is a Master Signature
member of the organization. Their artwork will range
in style and subject matter, allowing for a diverse
selection of paintings to be available to collectors.
“We believe in the idea that a successful art market
takes three components: the artist, the dealer and
the collector,” says the host gallery. “When all three
converge, success is optimized. We are so proud to
host, share and sell the artwork of the OPA Virtuosos.”
In the exhibition are works by Davis Perkins,
Karen Budan, Sandra Corpora and Sivananda
Virtuosos of the OPA will kick off with a reception
