Dear Members, Supporters and Friends,

2021 came to all of us with great hope.

During a time of tremendous challenges brought by the last year health crisis, confronted with separation from our family members, friends and colleagues, a time when we saw the vanishing of our social and artistic life, the Allied Artists of America, continuously dedicated to promoting artists and their work, produced two outstanding artistic events: our 107th Annual exhibition, in an extended online format and the Associate Members online Competition; both virtual exhibitions are on view on our website until April 2022. These remarkable and inspiring exhibitions were made possible by your enthusiastic participation and generosity, joining the dedication and tireless efforts of our Board Members. On behalf of the Allied Artists of America I thank you all for being a part of our organization.

 

Well into this year of 2021, we have been working toward having, once more, an in-person and on-location exhibition, hosted by the historical Salmagundi Cub. Our 108th Annual exhibition will take place in both upper and lower grandiose galleries of the club. However, our award ceremony will be online only.

We are proud to announce four newly added awards: the Audrey Love Memorial Award, the Daniel E. Greene, N.A. Memorial Award, the Award for Excellence in Representational Traditional Sculpture and the Pastel Painters Society of Cape Cod Award.

Our Juror of Selection will be John Simko, Director of the Nutley Historical Museum in Nutley, New Jersey.

We are looking forward to the upcoming exhibition and your participation in this wonderful event. Your continuous and timely membership support, together with your generous donations, are essential and vital to the optimal functioning of our prestigious, nonprofit forum, the Allied Artists of America. Moreover, your dedicated participation has an extended, positive impact for both artists and the greater artistic community. Thank you!

 

Wishing you all optimal health, creativity and prosperity!

Mitzura Salgian

President
