Local artist, Randall Tillery, has been accepted in two national art shows: the 2013 American Impressionist Society’s show to be held in Charleston, S.C. and the 2013 Oil Painters of America’s Western Regional Show to be held in Topeka, Kan.
Tillery describes his work as conservative impressionism. He definitely has mastered his craft and it is no surprise to hear the news of his acceptance into these two highly acclaimed shows according to Ana Rincon, owner of Rinconart Studio and Gallery in Placerville.
Tillery is a member of both the American Impressionist Society and Oil Painters of America, two of the top art organizations in America.
American Impressionist Society Inc. defines American Impressionism as the concern for light on form, color and brushstrokes. It allows equal latitude between these attributes and recognizes not a single definitive element, but several factors — including high key light and hue, visual breakdown of detail, concern for contemporary life, and cultivation of direct and spontaneous approaches to a subject.
AIS’s national juried exhibits are usually held in the fall of each year and are held at prestigious fine art galleries around the United States. This year there were 1,300 entries with only 165 accepted.
The Oil Painters of America is dedicated to preserving and promoting excellence in representational art while advancing the cause of traditional, representational fine art by bringing attention to the lasting value of fine drawing, color, composition and the appreciation of light.
OPA is a leader in the art community and a driving force in the new Renaissance.
