Friends of the American Plains Artists

wonderful venues

Our Exhibit hosts

Quality.  In a word, that describes the various locations across sections of the Plains that the American Plains Artists have had the privilege of showing in.

These wonderful facilities have contributed much to the enjoyment and aesthetics of our National Juried Events and the APA expresses their gratitude for their services.

If you know of a facility that may be interested in hosting an APA event, please  contact us.

Amazing Sponsors

Contributing to our success

Like many organizations, its success is often a reflection of the support they get from their sponsors. The outstanding support given to the APA by our sponsors has added value and prestige to the organization, but also to our artist members.

The APA thanks all these businesses and individuals past and present in providing materials and value to the awards given in our National Juried Show.

Here are just a few more of our Sponsors whom we’d like to acknowledge:
