The November show in the Murphey Gallery at St. Philip’s in the Hills Episcopal Church features members of the Southwestern League of Fine Arts, presenting a tribute to Donald Stanley Weber.

An artists’ reception will be held from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. Sunday.

The show runs through Dec. 5 and features works by Donald Weber, exhibited in his memory, as well as works in various media by league members.

Weber held a master’s degree in archaeology but was also an accomplished artist. He was a teacher, having taught at Pima College, and a student of art who enjoyed lively discussions on art.

Weber also loved to travel. He collected extensive reference material for his art in more than 65 countries.

He was a mechanic in the Army stationed in Germany, owned a business selling mobile homes in Colorado, and spent several years as a forest ranger.

He also traveled around the country painting pastel portraits in places such as malls and tent shows. He exhibited at many venues in the Tucson area during his art career and was a member of many art groups.

The Southwestern League of Fine Arts is a group of amateur and professional artists, open to adults of all ages. It currently has 45 members.

The Murphey Art Gallery is open 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays, and noon to 5 p.m. Sundays. The gallery may also be available during office hours Monday through Thursday; however, the gallery is also a meeting room for various groups during the week and their meetings take precedence. Prospective visitors may check the calendar on St. Philip’s website (www.stphilipstucson.org) to determine if the gallery is in use.

St. Philip’s is at 4440 N. Campbell Ave. at East River Road. Parking is available in the north parking lot or under the solar covered parking structure on the east side. The office phone is 299-6421.
