The Desert Foothills Library is the home of a permanent gallery for the Sonoran Arts League. The wall mounted exhibition is changed four times a year so that the Library features a continuous rotation of work by local juried artists.

The Library is fortunate to be the permanent home of other artwork that has been donated. For example, we have two wonderful pieces by the late sculptor Robert Thornley as well as other South Western artists.

Opportunities are sometimes available for local artists and photographers to exhibit work in the Library’s center space. In previous years we have hosted photography by Jerry Sieve, art from the class of Roberta Kritzia, the finalists in the Cave Creek Museum Photography contest and the Youth Art exhibit in the Hidden in the Hills studio Tour.

If you would like to exhibit at the Library please call Executive Director, David Court on 480-488-2286.
