Welcome to the Rio Grande Art Association!

Now in our 19th year, RGAA was formed in 1998 as a not-for-profit organization supporting New Mexico artists working in oil, acrylic, and mixed media. We welcome anyone interested in art and/or the use of a variety of media.

We sponsor or co-sponsor two exciting, juried exhibitions each year: Masterworks in the spring and Encantada in the summer. For current information about both, click here.

Check out our Facebook page for the latest information about events.

The Rio Grande Art Association usually meets on the third Saturday of every month, except July and December, when there are no meetings. See the Calendar for scheduled events. 

The next meeting will be on Saturday, April 22nd (4th Saturday) from 10 am to noon at the Hispanic Arts Building, Expo NM ... demo from Joanna Arnette.
