I’m very honored to learn that Alarm Bell was included in American Art Collector’s May coverage of the OPA’s 30th annual National Juried Exhibition.

Excerpt: American Art Collector | Issue 187, May, 2021,
Milestone Year 

The Oil Painters of America’s 30th annual National Juried Exhibition includes more than 200 works of art in a variety of subjects and styles.

Three decades ago, the Oil Painters of America began hosting its National Juried Exhibition to celebrate the talents of the artists who belong to the organization. Since then, the show has exhibited all around the country and brought hundreds of artists to the forefront of the contemporary art market. This year’s 30th annual National Juried Exhibition opened April 9 at the California Center for the Arts, Escondido, and collectors will be able to stop by the museum through May 16 to view the work in person. Anyone can also log on to the Oil Painters of America website  to view the show virtually. A panel of jurors have selected 213 paintings by Associate and Signature members to be in the show, while 37 Master Signature members of the group have submitted works to exhibit. The awarding juror this year is Master Signature member Jeffrey Watts, who will review the artwork and select the winners, including the coveted Best in Show. On April 19 at 6 p.m., a virtual awards presentation will take place to reveal all of Watts’ selections.
