MRA Associates' Community Gallery
We believe modern work environments can be places of inspiration. Culturally rich and beautiful art created by talented local artists is integral to the expression of who we are, sparks innovation, and is critical for the economic vitality of our community.
Offering a compelling selection of contemporary works, MRA Associates’ Community Gallery is an exhibition space dedicated to showcasing the original artworks of local established and emerging artists.
The Community Gallery is open Monday to Thursday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Friday from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Appointments are required.
To schedule an appointment, visitors should call SAACA at (520) 797-3959 x 101.
The rotating gallery exhibitions will feature a program of thoughtfully selected, visually stimulating art in an effort to support artists, foster dialogue, encourage inquiry, and offer enjoyment for the benefit of our team, clients, and the wider community. We are a proud partner of The Arizona Business Committee for the Arts, a program of Southern Arizona Arts & Cultural Alliance, in this collaborative business and arts integration initiative.

A Sense of Place and Home
Bill began doing photography while living on the Navajo Reservation near Teec Nos Pos, AZ for nine years. While drawn to the dramatic mesas and buttes in the landscape, he began to realize that what kept him in awe was the empty spaces between them. He saw the formations, but felt the emptiness. An important aspect of Eastern aesthetics, it evoked a sense of timelessness. Wandering through those spaces -- as recently as 2017 -- he looked for images that would give him and the observer a "here and now" moment. Though he no longer lives there, it is where he most feels "back home".
Lea Noble earned a Bachelor of Arts in interdisciplinary arts from Columbia College in Chicago. Prior to turning her eye toward fine art she acquired many years of experience as a successful set artist in the film industry. As a fine art photographer she explores the depths of season, repetitive line, and water, all metaphors for life and death itself. Her work represents reincarnation and a renewal of life coming full circle.
