The Art Galleries of Carefree launched the First Thursday’s Art Walk in downtown Carefree last month. The Art Walk features 13 unique and locally owned galleries offering a diversity of fine art, jewelry and home décor. Each participating gallery will have snacks and refreshments, as well as featured gallery artists. The Art Walk will take participants through the Carefree Desert Gardens, as they make their way from gallery to gallery.
Held the first Thursday of each month, Oct. 1 through May 6, the event runs from 4–8pm.
“Carefree’s First Thursday’s are an opportunity to celebrate local creativity and culture,” said Michele Hutchins of Gallery Michele. “Each Art Walk event in downtown Carefree presents an opportunity to recognize a local artist whose creativity and artistic spirit make this community a better place to live, work and visit.”
Participating Galleries include Adelante Art Gallery, Ciolim Art Studio and Gallery, Desert Glasshopper Studio, Gallery Michele, Grace Renee Gallery, Lance Headlee Gallery, M&E Stoyanov Art Gallery, Native American Gallery, Steve Stento Fine Art, Studio West – RC Gorman Gallery, Sue Bickerdyke Interiors, Thunderbird Artists Gallery and Wild Holly Gallery.
