Scottsdale Artwalk Relaunches

Scottsdale Gallery Association kicked off its 46th season

The Scottsdale Gallery Association celebrated the return of its long running Gold Palette ArtWalk series with its art and chocolate-themed event on Oct. 8. Serving as the kick-off to the Association’s 46th season, the Art + Chocolate ArtWalk, welcomed guests to peruse galleries and view local and national art as they stroll through the streets of Old Town.

This SGA-hosted Gold Palette ArtWalk and its participating member galleries celebrated the return of the robust art community and its 46th season kickoff with special musical entertainment, live artist demonstrations and pre-wrapped chocolate tastings from Cerreta Candy Company, a national chocolate manufacturer located in the Valley for more 50 years.

“We are grateful to bring our beloved ArtWalk back to the streets of Old Town Scottsdale,” says French Thompson, Scottsdale Gallery Association President. “We hope to continue to be the collaborative force for our artists to thrive here in Scottsdale—as well as on a national and global scale—despite the challenges of the pandemic.”

Since 1975, the Scottsdale Gallery Association hosts the nation’s oldest ArtWalk every Thursday evening from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., with eight themed Gold Palette ArtWalks that offer guests refreshments, entertainment, specialty exhibits and more occurring throughout the year. Each is aligned with a specific theme. The SGA ArtWalk brings together the finest art in Scottsdale including 28 galleries and two museums—Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art and Western Spirit: Scottsdale’s Museum of the West.
