I did not expect to find such a charming art gallery in a touristy town like Tubac, but we did. They were having an exhibition of local high school artists, and the quality was surprisingly good! The entire staff were very friendly and helpful.

We made a quick trip through the art center. Great arts, books, and other wonderful things to purchase. I picked up some lovely silver earrings while there. Everyone on the staff/volunteers were exceptionally nice.

Don't miss an opportunity to enjoy a great variety of art and artists. Southern Arizona is rich in artists who exhibit a delightful cross-section of styles, techniques, and mediums. You can enjoy these collections in a clean and comfortable facility. Volunteers are gracious and helpful.
