• Congratulations to Kathy Anderson who was just awarded Master Signature Status by Oil Painters of America

    Kathy Anderson has been awarded Master Signature Member status by Oil Painters of America in January, 2018.  Oil Painters of America is one of the premier national organizations dedicated to preserving and promoting excellence in representational art. Oil Painters of America’s primary mission is to advance the cause of traditional, representational fine art by drawing attention to the lasting value of fine drawing, color, composition and the appreciation of light.

    Master Signature Member status is awarded after a rigorous review of an artist’s work and accomplishments in the art world by a committee of Masters and approval of the Board of Directors. Only a few artists achieve this distinction each year.

    In addition to her affiliation with OPA, Kathy is a signature member of Allied Artists of America and the Connecticut Watercolor Society. She is an Artist Member of the Salmagundi Club and an Exhibiting Artist Member of the National Arts Club where her work is held in the permanent collection. She is a Charter Member of the Putney Painters founded by Richard Schmid and a member of the Rocky Mountain Plein Air Painters. She is a popular teacher, leading workshops around the country and internationally and has served on the faculty of both the Portrait Society of America and the Plein Air Convention.
