Art Along the Rio Grande is an annual Art Show Fundraiser to benefit the Friends of Valle de Oro National Wildlife Refuge and the Hubbell House Alliance.

The 2nd Annual Art Along the Rio Grande is a one-day art fair fundraiser showcasing the cultural heritage and ecological significance of the Rio Grande Valley.

The Friends of Valle de Oro National Wildlife Refuge is the nonprofit support group for Valle de Oro National Wildlife Refuge, which is protected for wildlife and people to enjoy and located on 2nd Street in the South Valley.

The Hubbell House Alliance is the nonprofit support group for the Gutiérrez Hubbell House, a cultural site and Bernalillo County Open Space property also located in the South Valley.

Both properties sit across the river from each other and are deeply connected to the Rio Grande ecosystem.

This year’s event will be on Saturday, April 28, from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm at the beautiful Gutiérrez-Hubbell House located at 6029 Isleta Blvd. SW, Albuquerque, NM 87105.

The event features 30 local artists who will be selling their artwork highlighting the cultural heritage and ecological significance of the Rio Grande Valley, where a portion of proceeds from art sales will benefit the Friends of Valle de Oro National Wildlife Refuge and the Hubbell-House Alliance!

The event will also feature guided tours of the Gutiérrez-Hubbell House, a bus tour to Valle de Oro National Wildlife Refuge, live music by local musicians including Chris Candelaria, Laudy Montoya, Ri and Micah Corwin, Casper Gomez, and The Tumbleweeds. We will also have free kid’s activities run by the Rocky Mountain Youth Corps Youth Ambassadors, an art gallery exhibit in the Gutiérrez-Hubbell House Museum focused on artwork inspired by Valle de Oro National Wildlife Refuge and the Gutiérrez Hubbell House, as well as food trucks, including The Blazing Barn and Pop Fizz.
