This site has exhibits that change periodically. Today's feature was a show of paintings from a recent competition covering a full range of styles from southwestern to modern. Also a small show of modern sculptures. A good free half hour or so.

Probably one of the worst art centers I have ever visited. Fisrt of all the art is very average, second the space is so dark with no natural light, and the staff is not professional. So realyy not worth a visit in my book.

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.

This is a free art gallery (donations accepted) with an interesting gift shop. It's a comfortable place to escape the heat while shopping in Tubac. The collection of items favors western and southwest themes and often houses a touring exhibit. We were there to take...More
