He who knows how to appreciate colour relationships, the influence of one colour on another, their contrasts and dissonances, is promised an infinitely diverse imagery.
- Sonia Delaunay
Colour is my day-long obsession, joy and torment.

Oil Painters of America is a national organization of artists dedicated to representational art. Each year, among other regional exhibitions and events, they conduct a juried exhibition.

This year’s exhibition, consisting of some 200 works, is currently on display at the Insight Gallery in Fredericksburg, Texas until June 17, 2013.

There is a page devoted to the winners of the juried categories on the OPA site.

In addition, Insight Gallery has online presentations of the participating OPA Masters and OPA Signature and Associate Members. When viewing the individual works, note that though the image on the page is not linked, there are text links to the right to “Click for full-size image”.

In addition, the OPA website has an Online Showcase, a blog, a searchable Member Directory and other resources.

    John .F. Kennedy
    ON ART:
    “If art is to nourish the roots of our culture, society must set the artist free to follow his vision wherever it takes him. We must never forget that art is not a form of propaganda; it is a form of truth.”
