Exhibitions currently on display:

Prescience Remains | The Work of Kate Breakey & Barbara Rogers

At a glance, the exhibition title looks like Precious Remains; and that truly defines the materials Kate Breakey and Barbara Rogers are utilizing and transforming in their studios. However, Prescience Remains is far more than a description of the work – it is a statement of the strength of character and vision both artists bring to this world. Breakey and Rogers have each created bodies of work that exalt the castaway, celebrating the wonder and beauty of nature while confidently looking forward, steadfast in the belief that beauty is found everywhere, has many meanings, and benefits us all. 

Barbara Rogers at Tohono Chul

Wednesday Art Talk with Barbara Rogers

Join us as Tucson icon Barbara Rogers bring us into her creative world – sharing her personal and professional history and how through art we can all transcend the ordinary.

 “I paint because the act of painting is direct; it is another truth – you make a mark and there it is, just you and this act of creation. When I paint, I am an explorer in the terrain of my own psyche, discovering what relationships will emerge as the work develops. I depart from representational accuracy to select and then exaggerate or simplify the stunning botanical forms that are present in the world around me.”

Welcome Gallery | Through May 10, 2023

One of downtown Tucson’s longest-running artists, Gavin Hugh Troy has been a fixture since he moved here in 1998. Prolific – Troy allows every experience to filter into his creative process. Resourceful with materials and moving through diverse subject matter, Troy’s work is fueled by his endless imagination and possesses a lyrical brilliance that takes the viewer to another place. “Making art has become a way of expressing internal and external journeys. Each painting becomes a nonverbal form of expression documenting that journey.”
