Welcome to the Rio Grande Art Association!

Late Light Sandias, Roger Gathman  2018 Encantada! Sponsor Award

Now in our 21st 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.

We meet on the third Saturday of every month except July and December at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, 431 Richmond Pl. NE

RGAA's next meeting is April 20th, 2019 at 10:00 AM
and will have the following presentation:

Ray Tussing will present “Unusual Possibilities with Acrylics.” Ray will show examples of art pieces rendered with cake decorating tools and various acrylic paints and medias.

Monthly Challenge:
Channel your inner Picasso during his Blue Period. Paint any subject in any style using predominately blue colors.

Directions: Driving on Lomas, turn South on Dartmouth one block East of Girard and go one block South to the Church, or turn South off Lomas on Richmond Dr., and proceed one block South to Richmond Pl NE. Driving on Central, turn North on Dartmouth and go about 3½ blocks.
