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 1.
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.

Women in Arizona Exhibition
Inspired by nature and animals, April's primary focus remains steady in her thriving wildlife series and domestic animal portrait business. As she travels the globe from Alaska to Africa for inspiration. April's eye for composition and design combined with her love of color enables her to create rich and unique art pieces. Her one of a kind style is a successful blend of contemporary and realism. She uses a variety of materials to accomplish her works but her methodology remains consistent.
"To me, each piece of art is a beautiful learning experience with amazing shapes and tones working together to tell a story."
In the tradition of the early artists of the West, Jane loves to capture the vanishing scene: old cars in Cuba, snow bound aspens in Colorado, colorful old Italian fishing boats, and sunsets on the Catalina Mountains near her home in Arizona.
Painting constantly “en plein air” was the key to finding the information she needed to move from her early career as an award-winning illustrator and graphic designer to her beautiful studio work.
Paddi’s passion for earth’s clay gives her work a distinctive presence. Sculpting with the wet and natural mud enables her to work spontaneously, without planning, allowing the next 'being' to quietly reveal itself. Carving the hardened clay also unveils what may be an 'old soul' hidden within.
A fully entrenched sculptor for many years, Paddi studied with such masters as Bruno Lucchesi, Richard MacDonald, and Simon Kogan. She has been honored with such top awards as ‘Best Sculpture’ from the American Women Artists.
It is a bit of magic that with nothing but a squeeze of paint, good brushes, and a receptive surface, you can tell a story. The hope of pulling off that little miracle every now and then is what brings Sheri’s passion to her studio almost every day.
Finding beauty in the details has led her to a realistic style, drawing towards bold values and intricate patterns. Sheri paints her subjects, but a fascination with the reflections and patterns of moving water led her to paint rivers, lakes, ponds, and puddles of the West and Midwest.
