46Th Season Kickoff: Art + Chocolate
Thursday, October 8, 2020 | 6:30 to 9:00 p.m.
The Scottsdale Gallery Association is pleased to announce the return of its long running Gold Palette ArtWalk series with its Art + Chocolate-themed event on Thursday, October 8. Serving as the kick-off to the Association’s 46th season, the Art + Chocolate ArtWalk, welcomes guests to peruse galleries and view local and national art and to be serenaded by a steel drum band as they stroll through the streets of Old Town. Participating galleries will feature chocolate tasting courtesy of local chocolatier Cerreta Candy Company.
This SGA-hosted Gold Palette ArtWalk and its participating member galleries celebrate 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. Masks are required and the ArtWalk will abide by all state and local mandated regulations in regards to COVID-19.
“We are grateful to bring our beloved ArtWalk back to the streets of Old Town Scottsdale,” says Scottsdale Gallery Association President French Thompson. “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.”
From 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on Thursday, October 8, local art galleries within the Scottsdale Arts District will host individual events of their own. Participating galleries featuring chocolate sampling and/or special exhibits include:
