About our Gallery

Exhibition is a direct communication between the artist and the viewer. Exhibiting work completes the cycle of creativity. Showing artwork provides opportunities for those who have mastered their craft as well as those who are learning a new medium. It can also illustrate the journey of those pursuing an idea or the mastery of a medium. Visitors to the gallery can see the outcomes of coursework and study as well as the ideas and work that stem from a continued studio practice.

Some exhibits remain in our repertoire each year—Small Wonders, The Gala and the Associates show (which change themes each year). Additionally, the exhibit council comes up with various themed shows each year. Most of our shows are open to community participation. We also jury proposals from artists in the Tucson community to keep up with art that is current, so we can present new artists and visions to our audience.
