National society of painters in casein and acrylic


Founded in the early 1950s to give artists a chance to exhibit their casein and/or acrylic artwork, regardless of style or subject matter, it was first named The National Society of Painters in Casein. Some years later when acrylic became commercially popular with artists, that category was added to the name of the organization whose president was then Ralph Fabri. Other artist members include Louis Lozowick, Elias Newman and Xavier Barile, and today about 30 states are represented. Sources: Website of The NSPC&A, AskART Biographies
