RAA gallery2Redlands Art Association

The Redlands Art Association (RAA) is a 501c3 organization that was founded in 1964 to encourage and support the visual arts in the City of Redlands and neighboring communities. It is an all-volunteer organization encouraging membership not only of artists, but people who appreciate and support the arts. We offer Classes and Programs to the public and encourage and support one of the largest Fine Arts Galleries in the Inland Empire open to the public free of charge.

RAA maintains an Art Center and sales Gallery at its downtown Redlands location. Art classes, programs, workshops, and demonstrations are conducted at the Art Center, and RAA established the Margaret Clark Art Education Enrichment Fund (MCAEEF) to ensure ongoing financial support for art education programs.

RAA displays art in public buildings, and sponsors several popular exhibits including the annual juried Multi-Media Mini Show at the San Bernardino County Museum and two outdoor sales, Art-in-the-Park held in the Spring and Art-at-the-Depot in the Fall.

RAA has no paid staff. Generous volunteers perform all the duties required to run the organization and manage the Art Center and Gallery. If you see “Position Open” listed here, you can call the Gallery and volunteer for it.

Sales Gallery

RAA Gallery promotes, exhibits, and sells the artwork of Inland Empire artists. It features a delightful selection of original paintings, photography, prints, pottery, glassware, jewelry, and art cards. Gallery exhibits are changed every six weeks.

Art Center

RAA offers art classes and educational programs at its Art Center and sponsors scholarships for children. Lectures and demonstrations by well-known artists are offered on the fourth Tuesday of the month from September through May.

Art & Abstraction – Simply A “Blurred” Reality by Angela Koenig

Saturday, September 26th from 9 AM – 4 PM.  $130, Friend of RAA discount, $100.

This workshop will explore the use of various watermedia in a non representation manner. She will focus on her interest in creating paintings that are expressive abstractions, emphasizing her desire to express beyond what is visible.  The degree of abstraction in your work is entirely up to you!  It will be a fun day to mix things up, to rethink your painting methodology, to learn some new techniques, and to loosen up your grip on that brush!  Acrylic artists are invited, too.  Brown bag your lunch or buy nearby.  Sign up at the gallery or by phone with your credit card info.  909-792-8435.
