On Thursday, Dec. 7, the Scottsdale Gallery Association (SGA) hosts a spirited Gold Palette ArtWalk with a lively Scottsdazzle spin. The event take place from 6:30-9 p.m. throughout the Scottsdale Arts District — along Main St. from Scottsdale Rd. to Goldwater Blvd. and north of Indian School Rd. on Marshall Way to 5th Ave. and within participating SGA member galleries.

Guests can enjoy seasonal sips and treats and live festive entertainment including traditional strolling carolers as they peruse the streets of Old Town and the galleries. More than 35 participating SGA member galleries will also be in the festive spirit in honor of the Scottsdazzle ArtWalk.

“Our Scottsdazzle ArtWalk is one of our most festive and well-attended of the season,” says Scottsdale Gallery Association (SGA) President French Thompson. “We love welcoming our art enthusiasts to enjoy our incredible galleries amid the stunning holiday décor presented by the city. We look forward to celebrating the season with everyone.”
