Four Florida artists founded the American Impressionist Society (AIS) in February 1998, in honor of their mentor, William J. (Bill) Shultz. Thanks to the vision of Charlotte M. Dickinson of Vero Beach, Florida, along with Marjorie I. Bradley of Vero Beach, Florida, Pauline S. Ney of Long Boat Key, Florida, and William Schultz, AIS has grown to be one of the most respected national art organizations in the country.
Membership is open to all Impressionist artists residing in the United States or who are US citizens living abroad, and anyone who enjoys and appreciates Impressionist Art and wishes to support it. Members living abroad are not eligible to enter our exhibitions. The goal of AIS is to promote the appreciation of Impressionism through workshops, classes, exhibitions, videos and other media. Our annual national juried exhibition is open to our members who live in the United States and/or are US citizens.
“Our Mission Statement: To promote the appreciation of Impressionism through exhibitions, workshops and other media.”
American Impressionist Society, Inc. defines American Impressionism as the concern for light on form, color, and brushstrokes. It allows equal latitude between these attributes, and recognizes not a single definitive element, but several factors–including high key light and hue, visual breakdown of detail, concern for contemporary life, and cultivation of direct and spontaneous approaches to a subject.
