Summer Art Cruise on June 4




When it gets hot, I think about water and cruising on a boat on water. No such luck in deserty Tucson, but here’s an alternative, a summer art cruise around downtown…in the cool of the evening.

Check out the 9 art venues listed at (Central Tucson Gallery Assn.) for hot summer deals on June 4, from 6 to 9 p.m.

One of my favorite art galleries is Contreras Gallery & Jewelry at 110 E. 6th st. which will be showing art by Neda Contreras, Nina Ducket, Pat Frederick, Lisa Kanouse, Armando Montano, Jacqulyn Shanda, Jeremy Singer, Carolyn Sotelo, Mano Sotelo, George Strasburger.   Check them out on FB as well:
