20TH Annual National Juried
Exhibition of Traditional Oils
June 10-July 9, 2011
Oil Painters of America celebrated its twentieth anniversary in 2011. To mark this special occasion, OPA planned a memorable opening weekend at our Twentieth National Juried Exhibition held at Devin Galleries. OPA members took part in this significant milestone and its' many fabulous educational events. Called the “Playground of the Northwest” Coeur d’Alene offered beautiful scenery, whitewater activities, a 120 acre waterfront preserve and the world’s longest floating boardwalk. With nearly 7000 sq. ft. of space the Devin Galleries was an excellent host for our opening reception for artists, collectors, the public and the press.
