RRAA is open to anyone interested in the visual arts.


Even if you are not an artist, but have a passion for visual arts, please consider joining RRAA!

In keeping with the spirit of the mission statement, artists are not juried into the Association. One of the intentions of the organization is for artists of all levels to be able to join together, share this personal experience and in so doing, further educate and enrich one another.

Annual membership dues are payable in January. New memberships registered after September will be extended through the following year. Current membership fees are $40 a year (subject to change).

To participate in exhibitions at RRAA venues and other special events, a signed Release of Liability form (that you can download in our ‘forms’ section) is required and you must be a current member in good standing to participate in all RRAA exhibits.

Membership meetings are held on the second Wednesday of the month, at the community room at Don Chalmer’s Ford in southern Rio Rancho, at 6:30 PM. With the exception of the December meeting, all meetings are open to the public (free to attend-you need not be a member). Monthly meetings consist of a brief business meeting, followed by a speaker or demonstration. Check our blog for program information. Opportunities for members to sign up for art venues, exhibitions, and volunteering also occur at the monthly membership meetings.

All members are expected to volunteer in some way that best fits their time, talents and interests.
