About ISAP, The International Society of Acrylic Painters "Our Mission is to represent and encourage artists using acrylic media and to promote the use of acrylic by painters worldwide. We encourage cultural and educational programs for the Visual Arts in the use of acrylic paint and support our membership and developing artists by way of lectures, demonstrations, exhibits and awards. Additionally, our policy is to invite a juror of reputable status and professional qualifications in the acrylic medium to jury our shows. This is an asset to the exhibitor because it can lend credibility and individual professionalism to the artistâ€™s resume and credentials. Besides the publicity this provides the artist, the assessment of the pier contributors to the Show enhances the artist’s potential for his/her future as a professional artist."
