Artists of Minnesota (AofM):
AofM is a statewide organization of artists representing all levels of experience and a variety of media. Formed in 1959 and originally called Minnesota Rural Artists Association, the organization was an outgrowth of the Rural Art Shows held at the University of Minnesota’s annual Farm and Home Week.
Benefits of Membership
AofM holds two events each year: The Spring Show and the Fall Meeting. These events are held in different locations throughout the state. Our events offer educational opportunities, plus the enjoyment of meeting fellow artists at all levels of experience with which to share our art and ideas.
The Spring Show is a weekend event. It includes art demonstrations, workshops, and an award banquet. The show is judged (but not juried) and includes levels for beginner, intermediate and advanced participants with ribbon awards in each category.
The Fall Meeting, a one-day event, features a guest artist who provides a demonstration or presentation, and a critique of members’ work, a luncheon and a brief Business meeting.
The Palette News, Artists of Minnesota’s members receive approximately 4 issues of the newsletter per year. Our news letter keeps members connected throughout the year with news, updated events, changes, artistic tips, etc.
