Local Artists - Local Themes - Local Interest
Tempe Galleries is an extension program of the Gallery at TCA. Exhibitions aim to place visual art in high traffic public spaces such as Tempe Public Library and the Tempe Post Office on Mill Avenue. Exhibitions and programs are developed to broaden the mind, relate to multiple age groups and create interest in a variety of fields and subjects.
(Rotating photos feature works by artists such as Mitch Fry, John Randall Nelson, Edgar Fernandez, Anne Coe, Dale Andress and other previous exhibitions.)

The Tempe Galleries program also collaborates with the local community to coordinate art events such as the annual Tempe Union High School District “ART 7 Exhibition” (entering its 46th year) and the annual Pyle Adult Recreation Center’s Senior Show.
The Gallery at TCA and its sister program, Tempe Galleries, have produced more than 150 large and small-scale art exhibitions and featured more than 2,500 artists over the past ten years. Combined, these exhibitions reach an estimated 4 million people each year. New and exciting exhibitions continue to be developed with a special focus to broaden the mind, relate to multiple age groups and create interest in a variety of fields and subjects.

What artists say about Tempe Galleries!
Christy Puetz: "One of the best opportunities to show locally. People from all over the Valley and out of state saw my artwork [who] normally would not have."
Jeff Falk: “Tempe Cultural Services knows and understands the importance of Arizona based artists showing their art here in the state. ”
Joe Willie Smith: “The public response to my work exhibited at the various Tempe spaces has been wonderful. The media coverage that I've received has been very beneficial. Thank you!”
Monica Aissa Martinez: "A library is not a traditional art environment.... the exhibition introduced my work to a different audience - maybe a broader audience.”
Troy Moody: "I find the entire team is consistently professional .... I would sincerely encourage artists from any stage in their career to consider these unique galleries.”
