Shop the Arts at Mesa Arts Center
Visit The Store at Mesa Arts Center, an artists cooperative gallery, to find one-of-a-kind art and unique gifts created by a juried group of up to 50 Arizona artists. Items in The Store include a variety of mediums, such as painting, drawing, pottery, jewelry, glass, fiber art, ceramics, photography and more. While you're there, enjoy observing an artist demonstration, by one of the co-op artists. Demonstrating artists are happy to share insights behind the work, answer questions and assist in the selection of items for yourself or to give as a gift.
All visitors are sure to find something that fits their taste and budget, and as The Store is part of the Mesa Arts Center Foundation, no sales tax is charged on purchases. A portion of every sale supports the Engagement programs of Mesa Arts Center.
Applications are accepted year round. Download the application and additional information here.
Looking for a new retail outlet for your work? Interested in learning more about how an art gallery works? Consider joining The Store at the Mesa Arts Center. This co-op gallery has been in business for more than 10 years. The gallery is a popular attraction for many Mesa Arts Center visitors, including theatre patrons, museum browsers and art students. The Store has openings for artists in any media, to join for the 2021-22 season (reopening September 3, 2021).
Most items in The Store typically range in price from $15 to $500. There are also options for lower cost items, such as greeting cards and ornaments, for customers on a budget. As a member, each artist is required to participate on a committee to help with store operations (such as marketing, jurying, volunteer scheduling, operations, etc), and to participate in our twice annual all-membership meetings (currently held virtually). In addition to committee work, artists take turns showing their techniques and visiting with customers during scheduled demonstration shifts.
