Mission

The Plein Air Painters of New Mexico (PAPNM) is a professional association of artists dedicated to the business of preserving and promoting painting "en plein air" - in the open air or outdoors.

PAPNM provides regular opportunities for members to paint together during frequent "paint outs" and hosts juried and open exhibitions of members' work.
