The gallery works like a co-op, with each of the participating artists required to put in at least 4 hours manning the gallery each week. The tradeoff is a decent sized area to hang or display pieces within the huge 3,000-square-foot open-plan gallery.
Many of Mirage's artists are newcomers to Phoenix's art scene, while others such as Maggie Keane and Campanella have displayed their works around town for years. Keane, a University of Arizona graduate, is well-known in the community as a muralist (peep her 7th Street mural here) and as a courtroom sketch artist.
As a pop-up, the gallery could be asked to move at any time -- with 2 weeks notice -- so check out the space while you can.
