#3 of 20 in Shopping in Tucson
Voted Tucson's Best Visual Artist five times, Diana Madaras says painting "fills me with joy." She is equally well known for her bold, colorful artwork as for her generous charitable giving. Madaras owns two galleries in Tucson, Arizona that feature her work exclusively, and is president of the nonprofit Art for Animals Foundation.Madaras is a colorist who celebrates the subtle, natural beauty of ordinary scenes in a way that is both intense and dramatic. She paints in both watercolor and acrylic and has a diverse portfolio - from brilliant desert landscapes to expressionistic portraits.A signature member of the Southern Arizona Watercolor Guild, Madaras has been featured in a dozen one-woman shows and her art has hung in the Tucson Museum of Art. Much in demand for commissioned artwork, Madaras has completed paintings for Westin, Loews, and Miraval resorts.

  • I find the Madaras Galllery the perfect place for shopping for gifts. I especially like to purchase closing gifts for clients after buying a new home in Tucson. As a realtor, this is the perfect way to introduce newcomers into the community of art. The Gallery frequently has an open house to which I bring clients. Diana’s marketing skills are second to none. I thoroughly enjoy the emails introducing new works of art and upcoming venues. She is the total artist! And the new studio is awesome.
  • We appreciate Diana and all of the staff who do an amazing job every year helping us to put on a memorable client appreciation event at the Gallery. Her work, and the work of the artists she features, is beautiful and the setting at Holiday Time is especially festive. Our clients love the chance to chat with Diana, make investments and buy gifts and take home her annual calendar as our gift. She even donated a framed print as a raffle gift for one lucky client! She says that she was "lucky" to inherit the business ability along with the artistic talent, and I say hooray for those genes! Thanks Diana.
  • Just walking into the Madaras gallery makes me feel good! It is warm and colorful and seems to give off an aura of happiness. The gallery is perfectly done to show off the beauty and unique flavor of Diana Madaras. I was also delighted to see the gifts that can be purchased that show off Madaras artwork like mugs, bags and trivets. I look forward to returning!😊
  • First off, I’m a real customer who actually frequents this gallery- not some fake paid for yelp employee reviewer! I have found so many unique and beautiful gifts here and highly recommend Madaras Gallery. As a bird watcher I have found my favorite paintings of birds here, and it’s great how many different items are carried!
  • Diana has created a lovely space to view her art work and spend time there with many social events centered around her art work and support of Tucson. I love my HUGE exquisitely framed Howard's Sunset hanging over my piano. There is nothing like having her vibrant painting to greet me eveytime I walk in my front door, and so many compliments from my guest as well.
