Plein Air Painters of New Mexico (PAPNM) is an organization of artists dedicated to preserving and promoting painting en plein air - in the open air or outdoors. In addition to advancing plein air painting in the tradition of New Mexico's renowned early and mid-20th century artists, PAPNM provides regular opportunities for members to paint together during monthly "paintouts" and hosts multiple annual juried and open exhibitions of members' work.

PAPNM is a 501(c)6 non-profit organization.


New Mexico, the "Land of Enchantment," offers stunning painting opportunities throughout the state - endless skies, majestic mountains, mesas, buttes, arroyos, adobe houses and walls nestled in groves of aspen, cottonwood, juniper and pinon.

The monthly Paintout Calendar is accessible only by PAPNM members. Only PAPNM members are eligible to enter various juried and open exhibitions.
