105 S. Cortez St.

Unlike conventional art galleries, the ‘Tis galleries feature affordable fine art paintings, photography and sculpture all of which are displayed in museum style fashion. A charming parlor area with a relaxing comfortable settee awaits visitors near the rear of the main floor gallery. Within it you will find some of the most beautiful handcrafted jewelry and wearable art in the state.

There is always something new to see and experience. The exhibits change every month and artist receptions take place on the 4th Friday of every month in conjunction with Prescott’s 4th Friday Art Walk.

The Art Center also offers a Third Floor Banquet Hall that is ideal for weddings, receptions, parties, educational meetings, and fundraisers. It features a full kitchen, restrooms, a covered outdoor patio and an ambiance that reflects the elegance and charm of the late 19th century. The rental rates are surprisingly affordable and proceeds go to ‘Tis for the wonderful community services we provide.

In 2013 we opened ‘Tis Annex Art Education Building on Marina Street. It is home to our STEPS Art Education Program for Children . Classroom spaces for workshops are also available.


“New ideas need old buildings.” is a phrase attributed to the late Jane Jacobs who was a journalist, author and  champion of urban studies.
