Tubac Festival of the Arts

In Tubac for the first time, visitors can see works by Harley Brown, Duane Bryers, Don Crowley, Tom Hill, Bob Kuhn, Ken Riley and Howard Terpning at The Tucson Seven exhibition showing at the Tubac Center of the Arts. These artists enjoy national reputations for artistic achievement and represent a special generation of artists who moved to Tucson from the world of East Coast illustration to new careers painting subjects in the American West.

The Tucson Seven have a common bond of exceptional talent and experience as forerunners in illustration and are not singled out as seven of the most well-known names in the world of western art. The exhibit will run through January 24, 2016 at the Tubac Center of the Arts. The Gallery is open Mondays-Saturday, 10am-4:30pm Sundays, noon-4:30pm. Admission is free, donations are appreciated.
