Phoenix New Times' Description
We can all thank Martha Shemer, a longtime Phoenix resident, for this picturesque art museum. Built in the 1920s the stucco home was purchased by Shemer in 1984 at which time she donated the property at no cost to the City of Phoenix. The only condition was that she wanted it to used to house an art education facility. In turning the home into the Shemer Art Center and Museum, she preserved a piece of Phoenix history and gave us all quite a gift. The impressive view of Camelback Mountain alone would be worth recognition, let alone the fact that the center host exhibits in its front room, art class in the kitchen and sculptures in the garden. The entire propert offers a calm, quite retreat with a distinctly enchanted ambiance that always seems to bring out our creativity and imagination.
Shemer Art Center and Museum is a community resource for a diverse selection of art classes and workshops paired with a museum and exhibition space for local artists. Classes are available to the community in mediums including drawing, painting, printmaking, ceramics, and jewelry design and casting.
