Academic Artists Association was founded to celebrate “the enduring triumph of realism.” Each year, the organization sponsors a national exhibition to showcase a cross-section of two- and three-dimensional art that represents the current trends of representational art in the US. We encourage all US artists working in any fine art medium in a classical or realistic style to submit work to our competition.

Jurors for the 2019 exhibition are well-known Connecticut artists, Sandra and Susan Wakeen. The exhibition will include over 100 paintings, drawings and sculptures by artists from across the US.
