The Holland Center is proud to feature an exciting, non-traditional venue where art lovers in our community can view, learn about, and purchase the works of talented artists from Arizona and beyond. Our Alley Gallery is ideal for group or solo exhibitions, themed exhibits, retrospectives, and experimental exhibitions. It provides a smooth transition as guests meander from our lobby area to various rooms. The Alley Gallery is hung with traditional gallery formatting for optimal viewing of the exhibits. To ensure that we are presenting works that will captivate viewers and deepen their appreciation of art, all of our exhibits are juried.
Exhibits generally rotate on the last Thursday every other month, with receptions held on the first Saturday of the exhibit. Receptions offer a great opportunity for artists to invite guests and share what inspires them, explain their creative process, and connect with fellow art enthusiasts.
During most months, we also offer our Art, Coffee and Conversation guided discussions, which provide a chance to learn more about an exhibit and interact with the artist who created it. These engaging events are free and open to the public; to enroll, visit Lifelong Learning page. Right now, Art Coffee, and Conversation is virtual.
The Holland Galleries Jury Committee cordially invites you to apply for exhibition in our beautiful spaces. We currently have openings available in our Alley Gallery beginning in Fall 2021. Individuals, small groups, leagues, and art organizations may apply to exhibit. Jurying takes place twice annually.
In addition to our monthly exhibits and events, the Holland Center offers cross-promotion with other programs, including the Desert Foothills Theater. The Holland Gallery of Fine Art experience significant foot traffic, offering a great opportunity to introduce your work to a new audience of art lovers.
