Paso Robles Art Association is a non-profit 501 c (3) open membership organization with the mission: to raise awareness and appreciation of the arts within the membership and the community at large, to provide community outreach and youth art education. PRAA offers members artwork for sale in gallery shows. In keeping with contemporary practice, the organization accepts all mediums in gallery shows and promotes juried shows, which gives primacy to concept or intention of the artist, regardless of the medium of expression.
In 1949, enthusiastic art lovers started the Paso Robles Art Guild, which grew into the Paso Robles Art Association – PRAA – a non-profit 501c(3) organization. Artists, art appreciators and business sponsors are invited to be members!
Location: The PRAA Showroom Gallery is located inside of the Studios on the Park in Studio #7 at 1130 Pine Street in Paso Robles, across from our historic downtown park.
