The primary goal of the Northwest Oil Painters Guild is to promote, support and encourage member artists.
Our website is designed to generate a wider interest in oil paining. It is a vehicle to educate and also to portray the work of our members. So whether you are shopping for art, are interested in joining NOPG, or just looking to satisfy your artistic cravings, we hope to inspire you to join us in the local oil painting scene. Welcome to the Northwest Oil Painter’s Guild.
Or group of artists offers a broad range of styles, techniques and genres; a diversity from which we all benefit. We participate in and share information on area painting competitions, show our work in many southwest Washington galleries and shows, and act as a conduit for all local art news. NOPG has an active group of plein air painters, who take advantage of the beauty of the Pacific Northwest whenever possible, and are willing to share their expertise and camaraderie in the field. Whether you are painting in the realist, abstract, modern, or a mix of things, we encourage and welcome your input and participation.
