Our Mission is to sponsor, encourage, assist and promote enjoyment and understanding of the Visual Arts in Northwest Arkansas.

Celebrating the Art and Artists of Northwest Arkansas

Northwest Arkansas is rich in artistic talent and we’re proud to have so many amazing artists from diverse backgrounds and occupations from this area as part of the ANA community. We offer a welcoming and inclusive place for artists of all kinds to showcase their work, learn new skills, and be part of the growing art scene in Northwest Arkansas and the surrounding area.

We are proud to present our new face to Northwest Arkansas. We have a new logo, website, and a new home, plus we are finding more ways to participate in the arts in the area. Watch for new events and opportunities coming up in the months ahead.

1 pm – 5 pm: Tuesday – Sunday


We had a wonderful 2022 and I’m very excited about what is ahead for us in 2023. We are actually growing as an organization and building a reputation for quality art in NWA. Our home at the Roger Experimental House as allowed us the spread our wings a bit and provide more programs, opportunities and avenues for individual and cooperative growth and education. 2023 is when we will begin to reach out more into the community and offer more art education classes and programs. Grants and our own fund raising efforts are providing us the base we needed to do more. I’m so grateful to everyone for helping make ANA such a great organization and supportive creative community. So everyone, jump in and join in the fun that’s ahead of us. It’s time to make some art!


Starting June 1, 2023 the ANA Gallery at the Rogers Experimental House will be open 6 days a week. The new hours are 1 pm – 5 pm, Tuesday through Sunday. We are changing our hours to better serve the public, patrons, and our ANA membership.
