The Associated Artists of Pittsburgh (AAP) is the oldest, continuously-exhibiting, visual arts organization in the country. Founded in 1910, AAP has spent over 100 years as a driving force in Pittsburgh’s dynamic cultural life. Its mission today, as then, is to provide a vital and challenging environment for artists to exhibit new work in the widest possible range of media.
Governed by a volunteer Board of Directors, AAP serves over 550 members who are selected through a semi-annual open call jury process. The highlight of AAP’s calendar is the Annual Exhibition, which is typically held at one of the regional museums, including the Carnegie Museum of Art. The only continuous annual juried show in the region, the AAP Annual has been host to many renowned artists including Mary Cassatt, Edward Hopper, Philip Pearlstein, Balcomb Green and Andy Warhol.
AAP continues to reflect the Pittsburgh area’s rich heritage and character. Members make up the core of the region’s visual arts community: they are full -time artists, educators and university professors and staff from many non-profit arts organizations, galleries and museums.
In addition to providing exhibition and mentoring opportunities for its artist members, AAP is proud to offer an educational outreach program for Allegheny County children. The hands-on program allows students to work with professional artists in their studios, to learn new methods of producing art while sharing ideas with their AAP teaching artists.
