Art dealer Elaine Horwitch was a major force in contemporary art in the Southwest from the early 1970s until her death in 1991, responsible for launching the careers of hundreds of artists from the region. With galleries in Scottsdale, Santa Fe, Sedona, and Palm Springs, she was a leader in fostering what has been called new Western art or Southwest pop.
This exhibition highlights the works of some of the Elaine Horwitch Galleries most popular artists. Drawn from the Tucson Museum of Art collection and loans from Arizona and New Mexico, these paintings, sculptures, and works on paper reveal the breadth of art and innovation that occurred in the Southwest at a pivotal time of change. Featured artists include: Tom Palmore, Lynn Taber, Billy Schenck, John Fincher, James Havard, Fritz Scholder, Georgia OKeeffe, Anne Coe, Louise Nevelson, Robert Rauschenberg, Larry Rivers, and Bob Wade.
The first Thursday of the month is free from 5:00 8:00 pm. The second Sunday of the month is free for residents of Arizona and Sonora, Mexico courtesy of the Stonewall Foundation. Groups of ten or more are welcome with a reservation at $10 per person for adults, and $8 per person for seniors. Reservations must be made at least four weeks in advance and in writing.
