A friend and I decided to drive down from Phoenix to attend an art opening at the Tubac Center of the Arts. We went to several cute little shops in the afternoon before heading to the opening. The art show was wonderful, with work from artists all over the country. There were lots of people there and we had a... More

The sculpture selected to be placed out front does nothing to enhance the terrible new design of the building. There are good artists in Tubac and why they are not shown at this art center has always been a mystery to me when I have visited.

There is something for everyone, "nicknack-paddy-wack", paintings, sculptures, jewelry, etc. The shopkeepers were friendly, informative, and helpful. Many of the shops enlisted artifacts from South America, as well as Mexico. The restaurants and snack shops were varied and excellent. The volume of shops was also excellent, we couldn't... More

After doing so we all said that we would be back. If you like the different kinds of art work and gallerys with so... More

We went during the low season and many places were closed and most of the shops we could afford were the same items. It seems like an interesting community and may be more lively during the high (cool) season.

The newly renovated TCA is truly a pleasurable experience ... one floor, spacious and friendly, with a gorgeous gift shop. You may roam on your own or receive info from a gallery host. The Master Gallery is rich in history with examples of noted Tubac Artists - Cabot, Stefan, Hal Empie. It's always contemporary in it's approach with revolving exhibits... More
