Scottsdale Gallery Association Announces “Summer Spectacular” Art Walk
Free Downtown Scottsdale event welcomes guests to explore local art; enjoy sips inspired by the tropics
The Scottsdale Gallery Association just announced the date for the Summer Spectacular Art Walk, presented by Museum Square, which takes place along Main Street from Scottsdale Road to Goldwater Blvd. and north of Indian School on Marshall Way to 5th Avenue.
On Thursday, July 12, 2018 from 6: 30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., art enthusiasts will be “transported to the tropics” of the Caribbean, while enjoying sidewalk misting (provided by Az Mist Systems), Hawaiian Shaved Ice with “adult” flavors, island music and balloon artist Joy Young who will be making inflatable art for the young and the young at heart. Participating galleries will be featuring exhibits by national and international artists and serving cold refreshments including fruit- and cucumber-infused ice water, flavored teas and wine.
Holly Bohling, who serves on the board of the Scottsdale Gallery Association and as gallery manager and co-founder of one of the participating galleries, Amery Bohling Fine Art, says, “Our art walks have become world-renowned as one of the few places where visitors can easily park, take a leisurely stroll and see a great variety of museum-caliber art from all genres.” Galleries represent a wide array of art mediums including paintings from traditional landscape and portrait to contemporary works, sculptures, photography and one-of-a-kind jewelry. “Visitors may even have an opportunity to meet a master artist and talk with them about their creative expressions. And when they are ready to stop for dinner or a drink, we have lovely places to dine in the midst of all the beautiful artistry.”
More than 39 Downtown Scottsdale galleries are represented in the Scottsdale Gallery Association as members and participate in the SGA’s weekly art walks and special events. For more, visit www.scottsdalegalleries.com.
