ABOUT US

The American Plains Artists or APA was first organized in 1982 as a small group of artists who banded together to highlight through their art, the variety to be found in the vast region known as the American Plains.

From these humble beginnings, the APA today has expanded into a nonprofit organization with a growing membership of both signature and associate members.

Activities of the APA include organizing an annual juried show to encourage, inform and reward artists working in traditional media who maintain high standards of quality and integrity in their representational recordings and artistic expressions of the heritage and history of the Plains. Additional activities include scholarships, workshops, demonstrations and lectures, and an opportunity for members to network among other members.
