Secluded is a showcase of works created by Art 480/580, Painting Studio Practice, during quarantine. Each painting is connected to each other through the artists’ shared simultaneous experience of a forced state of seclusion.

These artworks express our recently established backgrounds with self-confinement through a variety of expressions. Loss, decay, and grievance live alongside mythology, personal growth, and the great outdoors. But, the differential experiences that this particular group of artists shared also exposes the connective tissue working behind the scenes. The stories considering “when” and “why” bubble up, creating a multidimensional and communal space that reminds us that most of our lives have all recently drastically changed in a blink of an eye. Our jobs as artists are to absorb, digest, and then to create, now after months of seclusion…this exhibition navigates the guarantee that art will still prevail.

The Galleries at the School of Art aim to educate, engender interest, and promote public discourse among University of Arizona students and faculty as well as the larger Tucson and Southern Arizona communities.

Our two-fold mission offers career development opportunities to students and emerging artists, while increasing public understanding of contemporary art by exposing our community to a diverse range of media and thematic approaches through the Visiting Artists, Scholars and Exhibitions series and our own student work.

This site offers virtual tours of the exhibitions at the Joseph Gross Gallery and the Lionel Rombach Gallery.

The Graduate Gallery has its own site for virtual exhibitions.
