Mission & History
Since 1981, Etherton Gallery has showcased the icons of the history of photography as well as the contemporary artists changing its course. Our exhibitions highlight the most important figures in the history of the medium and we remain dedicated to making great works of photography accessible to novices and experienced collectors alike.
A champion of the arts of the Southwest and in particular Tucson, the gallery also exhibits top local and regional artists working in a variety of media, and presents free exhibition programs that address related local and national issues.
Etherton Gallery is a long-standing member of the Association of International Photography Art Dealers (AIPAD) and participates in fine art photography fairs including the AIPAD Photography Show NY, Classic Photographs LA, and Paris Photo.
One of the most impressive photographic collections I've seen. They had a Danny Lyons exhibition when I was there. I highly recommend a visit to this gallery. It's downtown and right next to numerous restaurants.
Historic building. Lively Opening receptions. My favorite. Go! Walking access to a downtown renaissance for Tucson a bonus.
As an amateur photographer I always admired Adams. But it took going here and seeing the pictures in silver nitrate to make me realize just how spectacular his photographs are. The museum has a large number of his pictures on display and rotates the exhibition.
