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.

We're so glad you enjoyed your visit to the art center and the Jose Trujillo exhibit. We love supporting regional artists and finding new homes for their beautiful art work.

One of the things we really liked about the center was that the items were all from local artists. Much of Tubac has inventory from Mexico and South America. We were interested in local artists and this was a good place to find them.
