The Scottsdale Gallery Association (SGA) presents the Old World Meets New World Gold Palette ArtWalk on Thurs., April 13. Designed to showcase and honor the artists of the past as well as the artists of tomorrow, the event features live music, refreshments, and dedicated exhibitions within participating galleries.
The Old World Meets New World Gold Palette ArtWalk, taking place throughout the Scottsdale Arts District, residing along Main St. from Scottsdale Road to Goldwater Boulevard and north of Indian School Road on Marshall Way to 5th Avenue pays homage to artists of a variety of mediums.
“Art allows us to transcend time — to go back to the past and look to the future,” says Scottsdale Gallery Association President French Thompson. “With this new ArtWalk theme, we encourage art enthusiasts to look beyond time when it comes to art — to appreciate the art of the past and to embrace the art of the future in their varied forms and mediums. Art should not have to fit into the constraints of time, but instead forever commemorate the artists’ true form of expression.”
In addition to entertainment within the Scottsdale Arts District during the ArtWalk, participating Scottsdale Gallery Association member galleries will also be featuring their own unique exhibitions and events that align with the theme including:
