SLMM serves as an educational society and a network for artists interested in a holistic perspective to art. National exhibitions are held in museums and public or collegiate galleries, as well as regional shows according to specific guidelines. All exhibitions are juried and intended to demonstrate the underlying holistic premise of SLMM with no competitiveness or award presentations.


SLMM has produced several books, videos, and catalogues. The website is a continually updated source of information of member's activities and includes several newsletters published throughout the year. The website is open to all members who wish to submit items of interest for inclusion in the newsletter or the member news section. All members are welcome to participate in the artist links and the ‘artist pages’ profiles, as well as the forum (members only access).

National conferences are held annually in different geographical locations throughout the United States and all members are encouraged to attend. The conferences are opportunities for interaction among members, exchanging ideas and techniques, sharing adventures, and networking with guest artists / workshop instructors and keynote speakers.

SLMM is a 501(c)(3) non–profit organization founded in May 1982 in the state of New Mexico.
