Now in our 20th 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 fall. For current information about both, click here.

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