Master Gallery

The Master Gallery and the east wing of the art center was built in 2012 after a two year capital campaign. Its original focus was to create a gallery space dedicated to hosting the work of the historical and contemporary artists that made Tubac the place “where art and history meet.”

Studio Gallery

The Studio Gallery shares the space with our library, meeting room, and workshops.

The exhibit schedule fills three different gallery spaces from August through May with rotating national and regional exhibits with art by professional artists, as well as art produced by local high school students in our annual Hi-Art exhibit each May.
