“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. Whit­ney Wilken­ing will also be in the gallery show­cas­ing her orig­i­nal col­lec­tion of roy­al­tyin­spired travel jew­elry. On Thurs­day, March 5, from 5:30 to 7 p.m., Madaras Gallery will host First Thurs­day with spe­cial guest Glann. The gallery then hosts its an­nual All Artist Show, one of the big­gest events of the year, on Sun­day, March 8, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Madaras will un­veil her new orig­i­nal paint­ings.
