Oil Painters of America (OPA) represents more than 3,400 artists throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico. OPA is dedicated to preserving and promoting excellence in representational art. Its primary focus is to draw attention to the lasting value of fine drawing, color, composition and the appreciation of light.

This show features approximately 100 paintings by some of North America’s best oil painters including Master Signature Members, as well as some of today’s most talented emerging artists.

Acceptance into the regional shows has become increasingly difficult. For this year's eastern regional exhibition, OPA received approximately 800 entries.

The paintings are juried into the exhibition by a Jury of Selection Committee, comprised of two Master Signature artists and three Signature artists. "When you are drawing from professional artists from across the eastern seaboard and beyond, it is understandable that the quality of work is going to be exceptional." said John Michael Carter OPA, chair of the selection committee.

Galleries that are considered to host regional or national exhibitions must be of the highest caliber. “Oil Painters of America is very excited to be coming to Orleans, Massachusetts for the first time,” said OPA president and Master Signature member Neil Patterson, “We know that Addison Art Gallery has an exceptional reputation and we couldn’t be more delighted to have them host this year’s regional exhibition.”

Total cash awards for this year’s Eastern Regional are $11,500 including a $4,000 Best of Show. The Awards Presentation will take place at 6:30.
