Beginning with the 70th Annual Exhibition in 2020,
Academic Artists Association will be transitioning to digital-only submissions.

Coming in 2019:

Academic Artists Association
69th Annual National Exhibition
of Traditional Realism

Details will be posted as they become available

Any artist accepted to two Academic Artists Assoc. shows within a period of five years automatically earns membership. Membership entitles the artist to free show submission with paid-up dues. Membership continues as long as dues are maintained in good standing.
