The Chiricahua Gallery is a non-profit, cooperative art gallery. Its mission includes enriching the cultural and educational opportunities for the residents of Rodeo, New Mexico; Portal, Arizona; and surrounding areas through concerts and cultural programs, scholarships for local high school seniors, and art workshops.

The Gallery, managed and operated by an all-volunteer staff, has strong community support with over 40 associate members and draws returning visitors from across the country and around the world.

The Gallery’s adobe building was built in 1910 and served as a saloon and brothel for many years and then as a general store. A church took over the building in the 1930s, and it served the religious needs of the community for over 40 years before declining attendance and much needed maintenance resulted in the church being taken over by the local historical society, which arranged for the transfer of ownership to the Chiricahua Gallery. The Gallery is now a designated New Mexico Historic and Cultural Site that celebrated its 30th Anniversary in 2016.

We also have a GoFundMe page up for a building restoration fund–this is a fundraiser to help preserve the historic adobe building the gallery is located. Please see the fundraiser for more information.
