It's actually... 15 W. Toole Ave.
Sanders Galleries is home to Ka've Bowls. If you've not seen these bowls, they are unique wood turnings created by local artist Dave Dosh. The bowls are exquisite works of art, created from natural and dyed woods which are often inspired by Dave's travels around the world.
The new exhibition with Mary Theresa Dietz is wonderful. Mary Theresa Dietz paints mostly with oil sticks, but she also creates encaustic painting, sculpture, printmaking, and drawing. Her subjects are mainly animals. Sometimes she likes to combine different types of animals and animals with humans. Her influences include folk art, pre-Columbian, ancient Egyptian, and ancient European art, German expressionism, the Fauves, animals and the natural world, and her subconscious.
Please stop by Thursday, Friday or Saturday 11 AM - 7 PM
This is a wonderful gallery!
A friendly and supportive environment where artists of all skill levels (and would-be poseurs like yours truly) get together to create art. Despite its name, the Drawing Studio supports all kinds of visual arts, from painting and sculpture to collage and encaustic print making. They have classes on all manner of topics, host regular drop-in figure drawing sessions (currently $10 for three hours), and generally promote artists and exhibits throughout the area.
The best thing about the Studio is the quality of people it's managed to attract. Talented and skilled artists bump elbows with scratchers like me, and you can learn some of the intangibles of technique and composition simply by watching how different people approach, say, the same pose in a live figure drawing.
The physical environment is challenging at time, but that's the only real downside I've found with The Drawing Studio. The figure drawing sessions (especially Sunday mornings) are so popular that you need to arrive early to get the best viewing position, and sometimes things like heat in the winter or AC in the summer aren't exactly industrial strength. But those are minor compared to the benefits.
If you want to ease into art, I can't recommend this place more highly. Low-stress classes (the kind you attend to learn things, not to get a degree or certificate), friendly staff and patrons, and regular opportunities to practice your drawing chops make this a great booster for the arts in and around Tucson.
A lovely new gallery! But I think their summer hours are still in effect (Sept 2010)
A group of Arizona artists called the Copper State Artists are displaying their latest paintings, photography, and scratchboard pieces at the Rogoway Gallery in Tubac. Individuals in this group of twelve are nationally known artists, some teach at institutions of higher learning, some teach workshops both here and overseas, some are magazine illustrators, and most are represented in galleries across the country. This is beyond doubt an exceptional group of artists and the pieces at this particular show are simply amazing. The exhibit runs until March 31 -- see this show before anything else, it is fantastic.
Nice place with good food. We usually eat a different kielbasa that tastes different in the smoked or fresh but that is our Buffalo, NY roots showing. This was certainly very good and this place has an excellent atmosphere for upscale dining. We will return
This gallery in the heart of Tubac displays the finest oil paintings and sculpture, along with fabulous jewelry, all created by local artists. I was amazed at the quality of the pieces. It is a must for me to stop in each time I visit Tubac.
We had several extremely fascinating ladies attend this fun Spring Miniature show to launch the summer in Tucson!
A blast was had by all, the stories that Mary told about the advertising and art scene in New York and Manhattan had us laughing!! A very good thing.
Diana, as usual, is a completely lovely, beautiful woman and fabulous, generous and talented artist. The tremendous team working with her created a successful event.
The Opening June Reception for the Platform Galleries, Dada and 6th on Sixth space was inspiring! It was really a joy to converse with all the artists and see the talent. Mingling with the members of this group really creates great discussion. The turnout was wonderful and the evening weather was perfect. Nancy Pohanic's art and sculpture was inspired by dance and movement and I was so pleased to see her work!
It is sad that it will be closing. More promotion and media buzz initiated by the galleries would create a stronger presence, during a time when many will be staying in town.
Gallery 801 is a fun gallery to visit and the work that Steven Derks is doing is really impressive. I was there for a TRAC (Tucson Revivalist Artist Collective) show and was impressed by the quality of the work and the artists Derks represents. I too enjoy Carolyn Anderson's sentimental dog paintings- she is becoming like Tucson's "Blue Dog" (NOLA) or maybe even our version of "Ron Burns". Gallery 801 is really an asset to the Tucson Arts scene and one of the Old Pueblo's undiscovered gems.
Hands down, the best gallery in Tucson!
Caroline Anderson's large soulful dog paintings are great too. She's like Tucson's own "Blue Dog". You can see her stuff online at www.muttbutt.com .
Gallery 801 is a really interesting art space. I really like Steven Derk's sculptures. Worth stopping in and checking out what is new.
Lovely and astute proprietress; if you don't see what you like out front (which seems unlikely) ask to see what's in back.
Always has some outstanding art on exhibit - and maybe some less outstanding, but always worth a look.
