Welcome to the American Impressionist Society

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 William Schultz, we have celebrated over twenty years of service to artists currently working in the style of Impressionism.  

AIS has grown to be one of the most respected national art organizations in the country, with over 1,800 members nationwide as of October 2020. 

AIS partners with galleries and arts organizations to present our National and Small Works Showcase each year.
