The Redlands Art Association (RAA), a 501c3 organization, was founded in 1964 to encourage and support the visual arts in the City of Redlands and neighboring communities.
Our mission is to enrich lives and promote a vibrant society by inspiring creativity, nurturing individual expression, and supporting the visual arts.
RAA maintains an Art Center and Sales Gallery open to the public free of charge at its downtown Redlands location. Art classes, programs, workshops, and demonstrations are conducted at the Art Center. Generous volunteers with a deep passion for the visual arts perform most of the duties required to run the organization. If you’d like to join us, please call the Gallery.
RAA established the Margaret Clark Art Education Enrichment Fund (MCAEEF) to ensure ongoing financial support for its art education programs within our community. Your generous donations and ticket proceeds of the biannual Redlands Cinema Classic support this endeavor.
RAA offers art classes, workshops and educational programs at its Art Center and sponsors scholarships and project grants for children. A lecture series program with demonstrations by well-known artists is offered on the fourth Tuesday of the month from September through May.
The RAA Gallery promotes, exhibits, and sells the artwork of Inland Empire artists. It features a delightful selection of original paintings, photography, prints, collage, fiber arts, pottery, glassware, jewelry, art cards and more. Gallery exhibits of members work and featured artists are changed every six weeks. Special annual shows are featured below.
Hosted by RAA and Redlands Festival of Arts, Art in the Park is a two-day springtime gathering of artists along with entertainment, music, food and refreshments. In addition, the Youth Art Expo provides a showcase for K-12 artists and ‘hands on’ art classes.
Calling all photographers to give us your best shot! This show has become a popular venue for both photographers and viewers and is open to the public. Visitors are invited to a reception to meet the artists.
Open to creative artists residing in California and RAA members, this juried show is only restricted by the size of your work being less than 14.5 inches on any side including bases and frames.
