10 Favorite Galleries in Metro Phoenix


Dozens of great places open their doors to cool shows by local, national, and international artists on a daily and weekly basis in Phoenix. Here are our favorite 10: 

10. Modified Arts
Modified Arts has been a staple in the Roosevelt Row community for more than a decade. The building, at 407 E Roosevelt, was founded by local music and arts maven Kimber Lanning as a space for local creativity (she even crafted her own invitations for art and music shows for more than 10 years). 

Throughout its time on the block, Modified (and later, Modified Arts) has launched the careers of handfuls of local artists and musicians and has made possible exhibitions by Melinda Bergman, Sue Chenoweth, Jon Haddock, Jen Urso, and Saskia Jorda, to name a few. We were happy to see the focus on local art when Lanning brought in Kim Larkin to direct and curate contemporary art exhibitions. And while we were sad to see Larkin leave at the beginning of the summer, we're looking forward to the continued focus on local art, as promised.
