Arts Council




The Northwest New Mexico Arts Council was formed to sponsor and encourage cultural and educational activities in Northwest New Mexico. The Council sponsors cooperative planning, research, fund raising, and public education programs, administers property, and undertakes such other services and programs deemed necessary to encourage participation and appreciation of arts by all citizens in the area. Overall organizational development and growth is a current target of the organization, rather than the current trend of proceeding on a project-by-project basis. Art shows and performances are the present project focus.

Be A Part of the new Handmade Guide

Apart from being the first comprehensive guide to the creative community of Four Corners, “Handmade” is unique among free gallery guides. Most focus on galleries, venues, and events, but our focus is the many talented individuals living and working in the Four Corners. We have expanded on the usual visual art content of gallery guides to include any creative person offering a product or service that contributes to the cultural life of the Four Corners. It includes, fine artists, artisans, crafters, musicians, dancers, writers, filmmakers, etc. Our goal is to raise the awareness of the general population to what we in the creative community have known all along, you don’t have to leave San Juan County for culture. We will be printing at least 5,000 books for distribution through the 2016-2017 fiscal year. Final Deadline: March 17, 2017
