Fine Art Gallery

One of Tucson’s best kept secrets

About

Renovated in 2018, the Gallery is the perfect place to sit alone or gather with friends. Many pieces are for sale.

The Gallery hosts multiple exhibitions every year, ranging from solo artist shows, to historical multi-media exhibits and touring shows from museums and galleries around the world. A public space, the Gallery welcomes thousands of people each week, young and old, Jewish and non-Jewish. All visitors can engage with the images and ideas expressed in this unique public space.
