On view will be more than 215 juried paint­ings from As­so­ciate and Sig­na­ture mem­bers of the group. Their pieces are done in ar­ray of styles, which spans from loose and fluid im­pres­sion­ism to detailed and per­cise hy­per­re­al­ism. Also in­cluded in the show will be a se­lec­tion of sub­mit­ted paint­ings by Master Sig­na­ture mem­bers of the or­ga­ni­za­tion.

Among the high­lights of the juried pieces
