Established in 1981, Etherton Gallery specializes in vintage and contemporary fine art photography, paintings, prints, sculpture, and mixed-media works by local and regional artists. Cited as “one of Tucson’s early and most enduring contemporary art spaces,” the gallery has been voted “Best Gallery” in Tucson for twelve years running. As one of the Southwest’s premier galleries, its inventory incorporates museum quality works including turn-of-the-century western American ethnographic and landscape photographs.
Mixing contemporary imagery with vintage classical and digital technologies, the history of photography is always evident in the gallery’s holdings. Located in Tucson’s historic Downtown in the landmark Oddfellows Hall, built in 1914, the gallery’s spacious environs house such modernist photography notables as Danny Lyon, Paul Caponigro, Harry Callahan, Aaron Siskind, Ansel Adams, Mark Klett, Kate Breakey, Graciela Iturbide, Joel-Peter Witkin, and many other photographers of national and international note.
