Since its in­cep­tion in 1991, the Oil Pain­ters of Amer­ica has grown to more than 4,000 artist mem­bers from the United States, Canada and Mexico. The or­ga­ni­za­tion has been an ad­vo­cate for representational art­work since day one, by con­nect­ing its mem­bers with ed­u­ca­tional op­por­tu­ni­ties such as cri­tiques, work­shops and more. It also has cre­ated plat­forms for the artists to ex­hibit their work in yearly na­tional, re­gional and sa­lon ex­hi­bi­tions. This con­tin­ued pro­mo­tion has al­lowed artists to build their rep­u­ta­tions around the coun­try.

OPA’S mem­bers—des­ig­nated as As­so­ciate, Sig­na­ture and Master Sig­na­ture sta­tuses— are at var­i­ous points in their ca­reer, al­low­ing the group to be di­verse and ef­fec­tive for nur­tur­ing the next generation of artists. Among its mem­bers is Ro­magean Van­noy Per­sonne, whose re­cent trip to Florida in­spired her se­ries of the state’s 29 light­houses.
