About RGAA

Formed in 1998, RGAA is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to educating and promoting New Mexico artists who work in various media. We welcome anyone interested in art, particularly those artists who work in oils, acrylics, casein, egg tempera, oil pastels, encaustic, mixed media, or any of the painting media that are exhibited without glass. These media may be hand painted on canvas, canvas board, paper, Masonite, and a variety of other grounds.

Traditional, classic, contemporary, or avant-garde painters are welcome! Our focus is on creativity, originality, and the development of personal expression.

    What we do:
  • Sponsor an annual juried show, ¬°Encantada!, and co-sponsor Masterworks of New Mexico. Click here for details.
  • Provide additional exhibition venues for our members.
  • Publish The Palette, our monthly newsletter. Click here for current and archived copies.
