Sponsorship Opportunities

Although Oil Painters of America is supported in large part by member contributions, we depend on additional support from sponsors to supplement our growth. Recognizing the importance of this support, we strive to create a mutually beneficial relationship with our sponsors by allowing them opportunities to gain exposure to our 4,000 members from the United States, Canada, and Mexico.

To reserve one of the following sponsorships, please e-mail Liz Pusch at lpusch@oilpaintersofamerica.com or call 847-277-1721.

Award Sponsorship

Sponsor an award at one of our Regional or National Shows. Sponsors who provide a cash or merchandise award valued at $500 or more will appear on the OPA website under the sponsorship tab for one year, and will include a link to the sponsor’s home page. Sponsors will also be listed in the OPA newsletter, and recognized at the OPA awards ceremony. Sponsors who provide $1,000 cash or $2,000 in merchandise or more also have the opportunity for their corporate logo to appear on the sponsorship page for one year.

National Show Exhibitor

National Show Welcome Reception

One of the most fun events during the weekend’s activities, this casual reception brings all of the artists together to catch up with old friends and to make new ones. A great opportunity for a sponsor to play host and meet and greet artists from all across the country. Sponsor will be listed on OPA website, registration materials, and pre and post marketing materials. $3,000

National Show Wrap Up Reception

Help us close the weekend festivities on a high note with a fun night of music and good food. The event will vary depending upon the location, but it will be a memorable evening no matter where!
