Located in Historic San Elizario in a beautifully restored historic building. Peña Gallery & Studio promises to be an awe-inspiring experience of history and Native American culture. This gallery features the art of a variety of notable regional artists but focuses on the talent of renowned artist, Amado Peña.
Having studied art at Texas A&M Kingsville, Amado Maurilio Peña has been a successful artist for more than 30 years. He describes his work as being a tribute to the Native Americans, and he celebrates the strength of people who meet the harsh realities of life. His paintings, whether they’re landscapes or portraits, reflect just that. Strife and perseverance is easily spotted within his paintings, the realness making his work all the more inspiring. It’s because of his inspiring work and his dedication to Native American tribes that Peña has been recognized as an “Artisan of Pascua Yaqui Tribe of Arizona.”
