This art show will continuously run from the twenty-third of June until the seventh of August.
It’s open to everybody. Seventy-six paintings and some sculptures by more than fifty artists—from all over the world have displayed their art here.
Visitors can vote for their favorite art; those receiving more votes will be invited back for the next summer show in 2023. Also, they can purchase the works.
The APA summer show doesn’t have a particular theme; it features various themes, three-dimensional arts & traditional arts which depict the American Plains region—cowboy, mountains, ranching the Great Plains, and color vistas.
The American Plains Artists summer show was founded in 1982 by a small team of artists.
They banded together to highlight their artworks. The APA has today expanded into a non-profit organization, with a growing membership of associate members and signatories.
The activities of American Plains Artists include organizing an annual juried show to inform, encourage and reward artists working on classic subjects.
Their work shows quality, integrity, and the history of the plains. The effort of APA members throughout the nation promotes awareness about wildlife, people, and landscape.
Also, they organize workshops, lectures, scholarships & demonstrations, and an opportunity for members to connect with other members.
