The Scottsdale Gallery Association hosts its final Gold Palette ArtWalk of the year Thursday, Dec. 10, from 6:30–9pm within the Scottsdale Arts District — stretching along Main Street from Scottsdale Road west to Goldwater Boulevard and on Marshall Way north of Indian School Road to Fifth Avenue. Featuring holiday events to coincide with the City of Scottsdale’s fifth annual Scottsdazzle extravaganza, the event invites art aficionados to enjoy seasonal entertainment as they peruse participating galleries.
“We’re excited to welcome our art community and art enthusiasts to enjoy some holiday fun this year in a safe and socially distanced way,” said French Thompson, president of the Scottsdale Gallery Association and owner of French Designer Jeweler located in the Scottsdale Arts District. “Many of our members are excited to present holiday celebrations within their own galleries so guests have an opportunity to explore a wide array of art mediums and in many instances meet featured artists while getting into the holiday spirit.”
This year, special precautions are being taken to ensure guests’ safety, and attendees are asked to practice social distancing and wear a mask. During the event, attendees can enjoy special guest appearances from Santa and the Grinch, live performances by traditional strolling carolers, and treats and sips while they get their holiday shopping done for the art lovers in their lives.
Celebrating its fifth year, Scottsdazzle features all-new activities in addition to favorite events of the past reimagined in a way that adheres to current CDC and state guidelines.
Enjoy the holiday transformation of enhanced décor and dazzling lights sprinkled throughout the streets of Old Town throughout the month of December. Local shops and restaurants are also getting in on the festive spirit by offering guests incentives to shop, sip and nibble throughout the season.
