About The American Artists Professional League

In 1928 F. Ballard Williams, Assistant Treasure of the National Academy of Design in New York, called a meeting of 15 members of the Salmagundi Club. The purpose: to discuss the need for a national organization to meet the increasing interests in traditional realism in American art. The attendees all agreed that an organization designed to protect artists’ interests and promote traditional American art was necessary. The American Artists Professional League (AAPL) was born.

The AAPL first focused on the issue of obtaining commissions of official portraits for American Artists. By using its national stature, the AAPL influenced a rider to a Congressional Bill stipulating that all official portraits paid for with taxpayers’ dollars were to be painted by American artists. A fact that remains in effect to this day.

Art brings people together to comment, discuss, disagree or agree, and to talk together. This free outdoor event in the beautiful Broyhill Walking Park brings artisans of color and of different nationalities and backgrounds together in a unity of competition, as well as the general public, who may or may not know the event is happening, and surprises them with a display of public art for a day.
