The Connecticut Society of Portrait Artists, CSOPA, is a (501 (c) 3) nonprofit arts education organization, that serves local artists and patrons in and around Connecticut. Their mission is to promote the classic art of portraiture through symposia, workshops and exhibitions. Founded in 2002, CSOPA has grown to approximately one hundred active members from the established professional to the promising student. They mount a number of exhibitions and educational opportunities each year, some exclusively for our membership and others open to the public. "Faces of Winter" is their trademark biennial open juried exhibition featuring 70+ selected works on public view plus a 2-day portrait symposium that brings together outstanding faculty and portrait artists from around the country. Their next "Faces of Winter" exhibition will be February 6th through the 28th, 2013, with keynote speech by ARC Chairman, Fred Ross, and will be honoring Nelson Shanks.
