American society of contemporary artists

DEFINITION

An exhibiting organization of painters, sculptors and graphic artists, ASCA has approximately 100 artist members whose creative styles ranges from representational to abstract, and from themes intensely political to purely aesthetic. The group is 100 percent non profit. Members of ASCA are professional painters, sculptors, printmakers, and other graphic artists. They have taken part in group and solo shows both in the United States and abroad. The Society was founded in 1917 with the name Brooklyn Society of Artists. As its membership expanded to all parts of the United States, the Society restructured itself. In 1963, it adopted its current name and opened its membership to all qualified artists. The American Society of Contemporary Artists holds annual exhibitions of its members' works as well as additional shows during any given year. At its annual shows, the Society offers cash awards in recognition of artistic merit. Members included Uri Shulevitz, Barbara Bisgyer and Charles Keller. Source: www.anny.org; AskART biograhies.
