NOIS began over 20 years ago as an informal gathering of Cleveland area illustrators who saw the need to communicate with one another regarding the rapidly changing field of illustration. With an equal interest in artistic excellence and smart business practices, the group began inviting various local artists to speak on a variety of topics.

NOIS meetings occur approximately once a month. In general, speaker meetings are open to the public and are FREE. Other meetings are members-only events, and include informal gatherings at local restaurants, museums and members’ homes and studios. Attendees are encouraged to bring recent artwork for informal critiques.
