American Impressionist Society, also known as AIS, was founded in 1998 by four Florida artists in honor of their mentor, William Schultz. Thanks to the vision of Charlotte M. Dickinson, Marjorie I. Bradley, Pauline S. Ney and of course, William Schultz, AIS is proud to serve our member artists.
AIS has grown to be one of the most respected national art organizations in the country, with over 1,750 members nationwide.
AIS partners with galleries and arts organizations to present our National and Small Works Showcase each year.
Membership is open to anyone who wishes to support American Impressionism and our mission.
Artists who are legal US residents may join and enter our three annual exhibitions: National Juried Exhibition,"Impressions Small Works Showcase. and new exhibit the AIS Online Exhibit.
