Joseph Gross Gallery

Joseph Gross Gallery is where faculty and students of the University of Arizona Art Department as well as student artists from all over the country exhibit their work. As might be expected from an art school, the works are mostly experimental, sometimes controversial, but never conventional, often addressing social and environmental issues. You cannot buy art directly, but curator Julie Sasse will put you in touch with the artists you are interested in. Call for current exhibit schedules.

Desert Artisans

Of the co-op galleries in Tucson, this one is probably the best. Thirty local artists show their work on consignment here, representing a cross-section of the Tucson art scene in a variety of media and styles. There is a good mix of painting and sculpture, with a focus on Southwestern desert themes. This is an excellent opportunity to both support local art and get your souvenir from the Southwest.

DeGrazia Gallery

Ettore "Ted" de Grazia, Tucson's most famous painter, left his studio/gallery in the Catalina foothills for the public to enjoy as a museum of Southwestern art. The building is made from adobe, which is common for this hot and arid area, and is surrounded by cactus and other desert plants. De Grazia was fascinated by the colors and cultures of the American Southwest, and that is what his art is all about. Gallery tours can be scheduled and take 90 minutes.
