The Association was formed in 1950 to pursue the following mission:
The Nevada Artists Association is a 501(c)(6) non-profit organization dedicated to promoting and advancing visual, creative art to be shared with the community.

NAA encourages a high standard of art through an ongoing series of
art shows in our gallery for our members and guest artists while offering workshops and outreach programs.
