We are delighted to announce that the 2021 Studio Auction is now on-line at Bidsquare. The Auction may be previewed and will be live from July 8th-18th. Register now with Bidsquare to see the auction results, or wait until the auction ends when we will email a special edition Grapevine.
In addition to our promotional efforts, Bidsquare engages in targeted marketing via email, Google adwords, social media, and a robust website with SEO support and thousands of registered users who receive notifications of new events. The AAPL Studio Auction will be advertised to 200,000 Bidsquare clients within the US, and an equal number around the world.
A Studio Auction preview video is available on the AAPL’s YouTube channel.
The Officers and Directors are looking forward to an outstanding Studio Auction!
The past year has been a devastating one for artists who had to rely upon classes and workshops for their primary livelihoods. The current AAPL Board understands the financial stress the pandemic has wrought and is embarking on a plan to ease this burden on its membership.
Our primary goal this year provides Members with a new opportunity for additional revenue through the League's first Studio Auction taking place July 8 through 18, 2021. Conducted through the on-line sales platform Bidsquare, it will also raise funds to enhance the League's overall Member services and activities.
Elected Artist Members and higher levels should have received an email with the Prospectus and a Link to the Submission Form.
Submissions will be accepted from May 14 through 28.

We are thrilled and honored to announce that the Awards Juror for the 92nd Grand National Exhibition is Mr. Peter Trippi, Editor in Chief of Fine Art Connoisseur magazine!
Peter Trippi has edited Fine Art Connoisseur since 2006. Previously, he directed New York’s Dahesh Museum of Art, which specialized in 19th-century European academic painting and sculpture; before that, he held senior posts at the Brooklyn Museum and Baltimore Museum of Art.
In 2002, Phaidon Press published Trippi’s monograph J W Waterhouse, which reassesses the Victorian painter best known for his Lady of Shalott at Tate Britain. Trippi went on to co-curate the Waterhouse retrospective that appeared 2008-2010 in the Netherlands, England, and Canada. In 2016, Trippi co-curated the exhibition Lawrence Alma-Tadema: At Home in Antiquity, which is visiting three European museums through 2017: the Fries Museum (Leeuwarden, Netherlands), Belvedere (Vienna, Austria), and Leighton House Museum (London). Trippi co-edited and contributed to the 250-page book that accompanies the project (Prestel).
He is currently president of the Association of Historians of Nineteenth-Century Art and of the Foundation of the American Institute for Conservation. He is former chair of the Courtauld Institute of Art’s U.S. Alumni Group, and past president of Historians of British Art.
