Mississippi Painters Association
A group of artists who wanted to promote and develop Mississippi’s art created the Mississippi Painters Association (MAA) in 1911. The association’s goals were twofold: to encourage Mississippi artists to develop and to promote the sale and exhibition art in Mississippi. Its members regularly meet for special events like workshops with well known artists and outdoor painting competitions. The association also sponsors juried art shows and offers members a number of financial rewards.
The Vicksburg Art Association is a platform for local participation in art. It hosts art shows and artist workshops, and will kick off the new season on Sept. 14. The new season will feature works from the permanent collection, and participants will get a chance to see the works of renowned artist Elizabeth Pajerski. A retrospective of her works will be on display at a recent exhibition. And because COVID-19 has interrupted art events in the state, the association’s meetings were put on hold.
Laguna Beach Plein Air Painters Association
Saim Caglayan established the Laguna Beach Plein Air Painters Association (Laguna Beach Plein Air Painters Association) in 1996. John Cosby and Jacobus Baas were also among the founders. The association’s mission, which provides professional development opportunities for its members, is to promote plein air painting. Members have access, among other things, to educational events, scholarships, mentoring programs and other resources to help them improve their skills and reach a wider audience.
The event draws painters all over the globe and has been going on since 1996. This event features educational programs, paint outs for local youth, a Collector’s Soiree, and a yearly art show. It’s an excellent way to take in Laguna’s beauty and do some painting. Here’s a brief history of the Laguna Beach Plein Air Painters Association:
Association of Master Painters and Decorators of New York
The Association of Master Painters and Decorators of the City of New York, Inc., an association of trade professionals, assists its members in all matters that relate to labor relations, collective negotiations, and government relations. It acts as an arbitrator in grievance hearings, and is committed to being a strong voice of its members. As of 2019, 85 members were contracted. The Association is a voice for the painting-and-decorating industry.
New York City’s Association of Master Painters and Decorators was established in 1885. It was founded in New York City by farsighted contractors to fight the many abuses that plagued the industry. The association sought to correct a flawed apprenticeship system as well as to address issues related to poor materials. It also sought out to guarantee the public’s rights to high-quality work by skilled painters, and decorators. While these organizations were not intended to replace unions or create a new one, they were instrumental in bringing about positive changes in the industry.
American Coatings Association
The American Coatings Association, a trade organization for the coatings industry, was founded in 1910. The ACA was founded in 1910 and is the industry’s leading advocate before the government. It has implemented a number of programs to help it fulfill its commitments. The ACA works to promote positive contributions of the coatings business to society, ethical and legal business practices, as well as legal conduct. To stay informed about industry issues, the ACA offers a number of publications and events.
The ACA encourages Canada’s government and other governments to evaluate their current waste management strategies. These include source reduction and reuse. The association supports efforts in reducing trade barriers and engaging stakeholders. The ACA also works with the Canadian Paint & Coatings Association to advocate for the best possible waste management policy for the industry.
