The Northwest Oil Painters Guild was founded in the Summer of 2002. it was formed around the common bond we have as oil painters and the shared desire to participate in shows and galleries with other oil painters.   Our members hail primarily  from Washington and Oregon. Our group is diverse as individuals and as artists.  While we are mostly representational artists, We also have members who are drawn to the contemporary side of art. Any phase or style of oil painting is acceptable, except work must  be original. Any work that  may be deemed inappropriate by the NOPG Executive Board will be rejected from official shows or exhibitions. A number of our members are also Plein-Air painters. NOPG members participate in out door paint-outs as time and weather permit. Peruse our Website. We invite you to e-mail our Membership Chair with any questions about our society.
