The Connecticut Society of Portrait Artist on View at Local Venues
During your next visit near Oxford, be sure to see the Connecticut Society of Portrait Artists’ (CSOPA) group exhibition. The show features many paintings and drawings created by distinguished CSOPAt members.
There is something for everybody, with pieces ranging from small cameos to large portraits, ina variety of styles and media. While you’re there, be sure to pick up contact information in the office outside the exhibition area. This will be valuable to you when looking for a portrait artist to create a cherished and enduring memory of a loved one or meaningful occasion. A portion of proceeds will benefit the OCAC. A variety of CSOPA-sponsored exhibitions, symposiums and workshops are scheduled each year to promote its mission. Included among its over 100 members and Board of Advisors are some of the leading American portrait artists. CSOPA conducts monthly meetings offering local portrait artists the opportunity to participate in the business of the organization, as well as to share current work in a supportive critique setting. The work being featured at OCAC marks the second in a series of “showcases” being planned throughout the state by CSOPA.
