The Community Performance and Art Center’s gallery showcases a variety of exhibits by Arizona artists. Artist exhibiting in the gallery contribute 25% of their sales to the center. Since the Community Performance and Art Center is a 501(c)3 organization (non-profit), it offers all purchases without sales tax — over a 6% savings.

The Gallery is opened Monday through Friday 11:00 AM – 2:00 PM, in addition to one hour before performances and during intermission. Every month a reception is held for people to meet and mingle with the featured artists. Enjoy snacks, wine and, of course, fabulous art.


L’amour de l’art

Featuring Work by Altie and Rich Metcalf

Rich and Altie Metcalf are both accomplished, award-winning artists. Rich’s art is basically post-impressionism but he loves creating realistic pieces, especially when completing portraits. Altie is a multi-dimensional artist, who alternates from mixed media pieces to creating papers for her complex, abstract, collage pieces. They both believe that by creating a work of art, you are presenting a part of your emotional, inner spirit — the art piece reflects something from your inner soul — it is an expression of who you are.

Altie’s intent is to draw the viewer in for a much deeper experience – she aims to convey motion and emotion while expressing both vitality and energy.

Rich, on the other hand, wishes that the viewer enjoys a wonderful experience examining his art — his method includes using undisguised brushstrokes and high-keyed, vibrant colors often straight from the tube or by using handmade, full-color, soft pastels. They both hope that the viewer gets immersed in their work and enjoys it totally.
