Oil Painters of America is supported in large part by member contributions; however, we encourage sponsorship to supplement the awards given at our exhibitions. Recognizing the importance of this support, we strive to create a mutually beneficial relationship with our sponsors by allowing them multiple opportunities to connect and gain exposure to our 3,500+ members from the United States, Canada, and Mexico.
To inquire about the different sponsorship levels, advertising opportunities or to sponsor one of the following convention events, please contact Liz Pusch at email@example.com or 630-352-6554.
Sponsors who provide a cash or merchandise award will have their logo and URL link on OPA’s sponsor page for one year. Sponsors will also be listed in the OPA newsletter, National catalog, and will be recognized at the OPA awards ceremony for their award. Multiple sponsorship levels with coordinated benefits are available.
Represent your company at OPA’s annual National Exhibition & Convention. To qualify to be an exhibitor, the company must be an OPA sponsor with a minimum donation of $250 in merchandise.

Convention Welcome Reception –
One of our fun social events during the convention’s activities is a casual reception bringing all of the artists together to catch up with old friends and to make new ones. This is a great opportunity for a sponsor to play host and meet and greet artists from across the country. Sponsors may provide information/samples during the event and will be listed on the OPA website, registration, and marketing materials.
Convention Breakfast/Luncheon Presentation –
Do you have a new product, technique, or would you like to share information about your company with the convention attendees? This event provides an opportunity for a sponsor to not only play host but also share an informative presentation during the convention. Sponsors may provide information/samples during the event and will be listed on the OPA website, registration, and marketing materials.
Convention Closing Reception –
Take this opportunity to close the weekend festivities on a high note with a fun night of music and good food. This event will vary depending upon the location, but it will be a memorable evening no matter where we are! Sponsors may provide information/samples during the event and will be listed on the OPA website, registration and marketing materials.
