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. 

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 frequent "paintouts" and hosts juried and open exhibitions of members' work.
