The Shemer Art Center and Museum is an art education facility and gallery in Phoenix, Arizona. The center was founded in 1984 by Martha Shemer, who purchased a mission-style house and three acres not only to preserve the property but to donate it to the City of Phoenix to be used for art education. Budget constraints nearly closed the center in 2010, but citizens founded the Shemer Art Center and Museum Association to help manage and preserve the facility.
The Shemer Art Center and Museum is one of the Phoenix Points of Pride.

  • Thoroughly enjoyable. Located in what was once a private home on lovely grounds. Small, intimate museum that focuses mostly on sculpture - both large and small. Donation requested but not...

  • Nice, modestly curated gallery with art classes. The hours are spotty so call ahead before you arrive to be sure they’re open. Classes are very overpriced for what you can find at actually art schools in the Valley. Good choice for older family members visiting from out of town.
  • Wedding & Reception - In November of 2018 our daughter was married at Shemer Art Center. We had 160 guests and it was a lovely event. The staff, especially the President/Exec Director Shonna James, was very accommodating and helpful. It was a perfect inside/outside venue, and we have a lifetime of wonderful memories to share.
