“I have found that as the real estate market goes, the art market goes. With the strong real estate market in southern Arizona, the gallery has enjoyed several years of growth and prosperity.” — Diana Madaras, owner/artist, Madaras Gallery
Madaras Gallery has been located in Tucson, Arizona, for more than 20 years and is known as the “Home of Southwest Art.” Diana Madaras’ iconic depictions of the Arizona landscape recently earned her Tucson’s Best Visual Artist a record nine times. Her colorful artwork celebrates the breathtaking beauty of the desert in a way that is both intense and dramatic. She paints in watercolor and acrylic, and her diverse portfolio also includes expressive animal portraits, rustic Western scenes and vibrant florals.
Madaras Gallery also features the work of 26 guest artists including John Nieto, Doug Oliver, Chauncey Homer, Nicholas Wilson,
Jim Gruzalski, Al Glann and Rory Combs. When visiting the 2,800-square-foot location guests can find original paintings, sculpture, canvas reproductions and a unique line of Southwest gifts. The gallery is a must-see for locals and travelers alike. On January 19, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Madaras Gallery will host a Bling in the New Year party, where Madaras will be on-site signing art and 2020 calendars.
