NHAA is a non-profit art association founded in 1940, and as such is the oldest statewide art association in New Hampshire and one of the oldest in the country. There are approximately 300 juried artist members representing a wide variety of visual arts mediums including: painting, photography, printmaking, sculpting, textile art, and mixed media. NHAA talented artists all live and work regionally throughout New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Maine, and Vermont.
