WWNA artist Rudy Miller honored by NAPA


WWNA member Rudy Miller was recently awarded a signature membership in the National Acrylic Painters Association. Sandra Carpenter, Editor of the Artist's Magazine, was juror.

NAPA originated in England in 1985, with the goal of promoting the recognition of acrylic paint as an outstanding artistic medium equal, and in some cases, superior to oil or watercolor in stimulating creativeness and fresh thinking in theory and technique. The organization has been quite successful there, gaining support from numerous corporations like Daler- Rowney, Liquitex, and Winser and Newton, and has mounted succesful exhibitions 12 times since 1985.

In 1995 an American Division of NAPA was established, with Gerald Brommer, noted painter and author, as President. NAPA USA will be mounting it's 6th annual international exhibition this year, at a gallery not yet publicly announced. These prestigious professional exhibitions provide members the opportunity to exhibit their paintings at top-level venues in the United Kingdom and the United States. While the organization is still young, its goal is to enhance the public perception of the medium and elevate the status of its practitioners; the growing membership promises to do just that.

Artists interested in joining NAPA may contact Lorraine Strieby at PO Box 4928, Chatsworth, CA 91313-4928 or E-Mail her at adobe9@earthlink.net Signature membership is awarded by jury or by acceptance into any NAPA exhibition.
