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.

  • Diana Madaras has a fantastic gallery. We love the desert scene paintings that she has created. When we were there in The middle of May, we had the good fortune of meeting her in person in the gallery. Very nice and accommodating! Have purchased a number of her prints which have received many compliments as we have them displayed in our home. John and Janet Brooks
  • Wow! Diana Madaras has put together a beautiful, wonderful collection of desert scenes, animals and western cowboy portraits. Diana has incorporated her artwork into a variety of media including original paintings, cutting boards, coaster sets & greeting cards to name a few. Her gallery which also houses unique pieces from visiting artists is staffed by extremely helpful and knowledgeable personnel. This gem is a must-see for Tucson shoppers seeking artwork or reasonably priced gifts.
  • I love to shop at Madaras Gallery. You can buy everything from original art work to fun souvenirs. I happen to love Diana's art and have collected a few pieces. I also love the artwork of the other artists who display their work in the gallery. There is so much for everyone to enjoy. It is not a gallery. It is a destination.
  • A lovely gallery showcasing one of Tucson's finest artists. Also presenting an ever changing display of local and national art in many mediums including sculpture and jewelry. A real visual treat!
  • As a recent move to Tucson necessitated my wife and I purchasing some artwork to adorn the walls of our new home, we visited the Madaras Gallery. What a find! Diana and everyone at the Gallery are so knowledgeable and helpful! We have made numerous purchases that all look lovely in our homes, and we have also found gifts for friends. Visit the Gallery, you will not be disappointed! Wonderful people and amazing works of art!
