We made a quick trip through the art center. Great arts, books, and other wonderful things to purchase. I picked up some lovely silver earrings while there. Everyone on the staff/volunteers were exceptionally nice.

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.
