I enjoyed searching and admiring the talents that are on display here. I purchased a hand woven jacket made by Bunny Rothwell directly from the artist! I will treasure this article all my days. Such a delightful experience. Enjoy your day here. There is something in every price range, but even looking and immersing yourself in the art is well... More

It's always worth a stop at the Center when in Tubac to see the paintings and other art of many local artists. Quality and style vary but there is certainly something for everyone. We found the gift shop had really upped its selections. We bought 2 masks made from gourds, charming and unusual.

It was a nice way to spend some time ,go for lunch and do a walkabout. Most of the art was not my cup of tea, but if you like the "southwestern" style you will enjoy this.
