Current Exhibition:

Experimental & Imaginative Water Media Exhibition

in collaboration with the Contemporary Watercolorists of Arizona


Exhibition Run Dates: May 6, 2022 to May 27, 2022

The exhibition is a combined effort with the members of the Sonoran Arts League and the Contemporary Watercolorists of Arizona. Our members were asked to create any interpretation of a traditional, abstract, or contemporary subject matter and they could use any water mediums to paint the work.  While the instructions were simple the results were far from it. Come see what resulted now thru May 27th at the Sonoran Arts League’s Center for the Arts.

Upcoming Exhibitions



Juried Members Exhibition

June 3 to July 31, 2022
The Sonoran Arts League Juried Members Exhibition will feature selected artwork from juried members of the League. Juried member designation is awarded to those artists who have submitted a body of work that has been deemed by a panel of independent art professionals to meet an elevated standard of excellence based on criteria established by the Sonoran Arts League.
Working with Abstraction
August 5 to August 28, 2022 
The Sonoran Arts League is presenting an exhibition dedicated to works of art that present an Abstract treatment to the work. Can subject matter in artwork devoid of any representational qualities still convey the full intentions of the artist and the subject of the work itself? Better yet, can the work convey the depth and meaning of subject when the subject matter is simple, a simple single emotion or object?


3D Exhibition
September 2 to October 2, 2022
The works will reach off the walls, floors and pedestals as we bring some movement and action to our galleries. We promise that you will not get motion sick and 3D glasses are not required for this exhibition. Come see.


My Generation
October 7 to October 30, 2022
What do you think represents your generation either now or then? Come see what our artists think is the answer. Will you be able to know what their generation is? Do you agree? The exhibition will represent Sonoran Art League members of all generations.


Creative Force (Veterans Show)
November 4 to November 13, 2022
The 5th Annual Creative Forces Exhibition features original work from U.S. military service members from WWII to the Present.


Hidden in the Hills Studio One

The Gift of Art
December 2 to December 31, 2022
