2014 Eastern Regional Exhibition

2014 Eastern Exhibition in Annapolis, Maryland

The OPA 2014 Eastern Exhibition
will be held at the Eisele Gallery of Fine Art, in Cincinnati, Ohio
from September 12 - October 9, 2014.

 The 2014 Oil Painters of America Eastern Exhibition will be held in one of Cincinnati, Ohio’s oldest and most respected galleries, The Eisele Gallery of Art. The gallery specializes in original paintings from the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries. The beautiful, spacious gallery will be the ideal venue for this year’s Exhibition. Should you be interested to venture outside the gallery, the city of Cincinnati has much to offer as well. For a day out with the family, you might be interested in the wildly popular Cincinnati zoo and botanical gardens. For some fresh air, a trip to the lovely Washington Park or newly opened ice rink in Fountain Square might be in order. If fine dining is what you seek, Cincinnati offers a selection of classy yet cozy restaurants, such as “20 Brix” and “Abigail Street”. No matter what you wish to spend your free time doing in the city, you will no doubt find Cincinnati to be most accommodating to your interests.

Our Goal

 Our goal is to assemble the finest display of representational oil paintings. The focus in the jurying process will be to select paintings that show the highest quality in draftsmanship, color, and composition, emphasizing a diversity in representational style and subject matter.
