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.

I enjoyed the spacious layout of the gallery with great lighting. The art displayed was a nice selection and the gift shop had plenty of books candles and lots to look at. I recommend spending some time here to browse the local art scene.
