American Society of Portrait Artists
The American Society of Portrait Artists, the largest portrait artist patron organization in the world, is an international association dedicated to furthering the fine art of portraiture and supporting the individual artist. The Society is lead by a distinguished advisory board of directors, all dedicated to developing an agenda that will increasingly provide every possible resource for serious portrait artists. The Society provides a means for networking with portrait artists and is a forum to provide valuable information, research materials, and links to seminars.
I really like the frame. It's sturdy and well made. In the one I've opened, there's a little imperfection in the glass that's not noticeable if it's set at the bottom (horizontal) side of the frame. It showed a plot more at the top.The mat is off white. I was expecting white. I can still use it, though. For the price, it can't be beat.
I received a pot of gold and one of silver in a "hand me down" box from a friend that included a variety of paints and other art treasures! So I do not know how old these products are. I tried the gold right away on an embossed piece I had laying around and was amazed at how beautiful it worked out. I have been using another gold product in the past, and it is no where near as beautiful as this. I am a believer, and will use Treasure gold forever!
