Closed for good

Tuesday, October 22nd, 2013

Flux Gallery will not be reopening at Plaza Palomino, but each of the Flux artists continues to pursue his or her individual path, and we hope that you will continue to follow us individually. Please visit our web sites, listed below, or contact any one of us as needed.

Closed for the summer

Tuesday, July 17th, 2012

We are closed for the summer, while Plaza Palomino continues its extensive renovations. Come September, we will be moving back into our original space, Suite 136, across from Dark Star Leather. In the meantime, please feel free to contact any one of us to see our work individually.

See you in the fall!

We’ve moved!

Sunday, April 22nd, 2012

Flux Gallery has moved from its original space to another suite in Plaza Palomino. We are now located at the southwest corner of the plaza, in Suite 114, on Swan Road, down from Luna Bella (now the new Red Sky and Luna Bar). Our official address is 2920 North Swan Road, Suite 114. The new space used to be a coffee shop, so we have some adjustments to make before we reopen for visitors, but please feel free in the meantime to contact any of us individually for a private showing of his or her work.

More flux at Flux Gallery

Thursday, March 1st, 2012

Flux Gallery is once again in flux. Painter C. J. Shane and fiber artist Mary Vaneecke are leaving the gallery collective to focus on other prospects. Lee Roy Beach will be stepping back from the gallery as well, although we will continue to exhibit some of his work, along with work by original Flux member Steven Derks.

In addition, we are cutting back our hours. Effective immediately, we will be open only Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. To see the gallery by appointment at another time, please feel free to contact any one of us, via email or at the phone numbers below.

  • Peter Eisner, 520-465-6600
  • Sheryl Holland, 520-749-3829
  • Dragana Skrepnik, 520-404-9888
  • Lynne Yamaguchi, 520-760-8938

The gallery will be in a little disarray for the next few weeks because of the turnover, so please bear with us during the transition. We deeply appreciate the continuing support of all of you as we persist in our collective venture and adventure at Flux Gallery.

We have just finished repainting Flux, and rehanging it with work from our new and old artists.

Flux in flux

Saturday, June 4th, 2011

Flux Gallery is living up to its name this summer. Three more members are moving on—two to larger markets, one to another country. Carol Ann and Shirley Wagner will be refocusing their efforts on larger art markets outside of Tucson. Katherine Minott will be heading south to Mexico for a few months.

Although we will miss our sister artists, Flux’s future looks fine. We have three new artists to fill our space and your homes. Sheryl Holland, who was a guest artist at Flux in February, joined us as of June 1. Her colorful acrylic abstracts are already gracing the gallery.

On July 1, CJ Shane and Mary Vaneecke will officially join us. Shane, as she likes to be known, paints abstract landscapes and makes prints and artists’ books. Mary is a fiber artist who uses surface design techniques such as paint and pencil on fabric, discharge dyeing, decorative stitching, and machine quilting to create fabric wall pieces.
