Untitled Gallery

Untitled Gallery is an exhibition space devoted to showcasing some of Tucson’s most talented local artists while operating as a team of ambitious creators. We provide the public with a platform to discover local talent and provide our artists with a beautiful space to share their 2D & 3D creations. Our select group of artists aim to excite art lovers and collectors with monthly curated rotations of art and new works. We are committed to providing the public with high quality professional works and a unique artist driven experience. 

 

WAMO

WAMO is the Warehouse Arts Management Organization, formed in 2004 as an outcome of the Tucson Historic Warehouse Arts District master planning process. WAMO is the group looking out for the entire Tucson Historic Warehouse Arts District—its history and its future. WAMO works to strengthen what’s already here—working with artists and organizations who have been in the district for more than 20 years. The mission of this artist-led nonprofit is to preserve, protect, promote, and program the Tucson Historic Warehouse Arts District. WAMO continues and develops the work of artists and related individuals who have helped to create Tucson’s Historic Warehouse Arts District as an active and varied center and community for the arts, within a downtown community that includes working artists, galleries, museums, nonprofit arts organizations, and supportive retail and residential interests. Untitled Gallery operates under the umbrella of WAMO; accounting and major maintenance issues are addressed through WAMO. wamotucson.org
