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.

Please join us at Flux Gallery on Friday, April 20, from 5 to 8 p.m. to celebrate spring and to enjoy the art of Tucson artists Lee Roy Beach, Steven Derks, Peter Eisner, Sheryl Holland, Dragana Skrepnik, and Lynne Yamaguchi. This will be our last event in our current space, as we will be moving to a different suite in Plaza Palomino, Suite 100, immediately after. So come join with us in toasting the glorious setting that has been our home for the last two and a half years.

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.

Artists’ talks

Monday, October 10th, 2011
"Beginning of Time" by Lee Roy Beach

"Beginning of Time" by Lee Roy Beach

The artists of Flux Gallery will be presenting a series of talks about the artmaking process. First up is Lee Roy Beach, who will be talking on Saturday, October 15, from 2 to 3 p.m., about “Painting as Problem Solving: Snatching Victory from the Jaws of Defeat.”

Lee says, “I always begin a painting with a fairly firm idea about how the final work should look—but it seldom turns out that way. In fact, when it goes as planned, the painting usually isn’t very good. For years, this caused me great distress, but I finally learned to accept that I’ve not really begun a painting until I reach an impasse. It is the effort to resolve the impasse, to solve the problem and save the failing painting, that breathes life into it. My talk will examine how this happens and what I think it says about the creative process.”

We hope you will join us this Saturday for Lee’s talk. No need to register or reserve a spot; just come. Next up will be C.J. Shane, who will speak on “Monotype Mystery” on Saturday, November 5, from 11 a.m. to noon. Mary Vaneecke will speak Saturday, December 3, from 2 to 3 p.m. on “Confessions of a Subversive Stitcher.”
