The Tombaugh Art Gallery at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Las Cruces

We believe that art deeply touches us all and helps us connect with the world around us. The Tombaugh Art Gallery is proud to host artists who use their skills not only to celebrate the beautiful but also to speak out against the ugly and unjust.


The Gallery’s Mission

We reach out to the wider community so that thought-provoking art may be contemplated within an open, tolerant and forward-reaching faith community.

Artists who wish to show their art in a superior exhibition space should consider the Tombaugh Art Gallery.


The gallery is located at 2000 South Solano Drive. It is open Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 10 AM to 2 PM and Sunday from 11:00 AM until 2 PM or by appointment.

For more information, call (575) 522-7281.

Who Exhibits in the Gallery

Emerging and established local and regional artists are encouraged to exhibit in the gallery. We offer both one-person and group shows throughout the year. We occasionally feature special exhibits that explore our Unitarian Universalist values and celebrate the creative endeavors of our members and our children.

Our exhibitions offer our members and the wider community the opportunity to experience, enjoy, and learn about art in all forms. Art lovers have a chance to see things differently through direct interactions with the artists and their work.

Invitation to Show Your Art

The Gallery Committee selects shows a year in advance based on artist proposals. The committee is a group of dedicated volunteers who manage, curate, and publicize the gallery’s activities. For more information about showing your art in the Tombaugh, please call 575-522-7281.

Beautiful Gallery Space

The Tombaugh Gallery has built a reputation as an outstanding and professional exhibition venue. It is located in its own wing at the church and provides a beautiful and intimate venue for exhibiting art.

The gallery features a flexible, climate-controlled space, high ceilings, and fine lighting.

Benefits We Offer Artists

Our Galley Committee members help artists mount, publicize, and promote their shows. Experienced volunteer docents welcome gallery visitors and are present at exhibitions, openings, demonstrations, artist’s talks, and other related activities. They introduce visitors to the art and provide sales support for artists interested in selling their work.
