AIS Mission Statement

Florida artists William Schultz, Charlotte Dickinson and Marjorie Bradley of Vero Beach, and Pauline Ney of Ellenton, founded the American Impressionist Society, Inc. (AIS) with this goal in mind:
"To promote the appreciation of American Impressionism through exhibitions, workshops, videos and other media."


Artist memberships are open to American Impressionist artists who are United States residents, or US citizens living abroad. Supporting memberships are open to anyone who would like to support our mission of promoting the genre of American Impressionism. AIS is a 501(c)(3) non profit corporation. Contributions to AIS are tax deductible. Benefits of membership include:

  • Eligibility to enter the annual AIS National Juried Exhibition (additional entry fee applies)
  • Paintout, demo and educational seminars during the week of the National Juried Exhibition (most at no additional cost) with the opportunity to network with artists from across the US.
  • Monthly E-Newsletter
  • Full color catalog from the annual National Juried Exhibition mailed to every member
  • Facebook group open exclusively to AIS members. Members may post images of their work and network through the AIS Facebook group.
  • More programs and benefits are currently in the planning stages.

Associate Members

Open to all levels, you may join by mailing the completed membership form with a check for annual dues of $60. AIS Associate Members in good standing may enter the AIS National Juried Exhibition (additional entry fee required).

Signature Members

Associate Members who have completed three consecutive years as an AIS Associate Member AND who have been accepted into three AIS National Juried Exhibitions, may apply for Signature status when renewing membership in January each year. Our Signature Members have earned their titles by showing exceptional impressionistic fine art. Signature Members in good standing may enter AIS National Exhibitions (additional entry fee required), use the initials "AIS" after their name, be listed on the AIS website and other promotional materials. Signature status is maintained with annual membership dues of $60.

Master Artist Members

Master Artist members are invited by the AIS Board of Directors and may use the initials "AISM" after their name. Masters are selected carefully and are nationally known and considered to be leaders in the art community. They epitomize the highest level of impressionism and passionately give back to the society by sharing their knowledge.
