Prepare Your “Palate” for Art . . . A Taste of Art ArtWalk
Coming to Scottsdale Downtown on Thurs., Jan. 19

"A Taste of Art ArtWalk" comes to the Scottsdale Arts District on Thursday, Jan. 19 from 7 to 9 p.m., hosted by the Scottsdale Gallery Association (SGA) in conjunction with the City of Scottsdale.

The evening’s delicacies will include gallery shows, artists’ receptions and free sampling stations hosted by local purveyors. Dozens of the Southwest's greatest art galleries will be open to the public with shows and receptions displaying artwork of all styles and media…some with food-related subject matter.

This 4th annual Taste of Art ArtWalk previews Scottsdale’s famed culinary scene, which features dozens of fabulous restaurants, many of them nestled amongst the galleries. The Scottsdale Gallery Association’s new YEA! – Young & Emerging Artists program will feature an artist demonstration at the northwest corner of Main Street & Marshall Way near the famed “Jackknife” statue. Sales of hot java from Shine Coffee and delectable desserts from Sweet Art Bakery will help raise funds for YEA!, which also benefits the nonprofit SGA’s Arts Education Fund. As always, there are many fine eateries nearby that make “ArtWalk’s Recommended Restaurants” list.

Live entertainment on the streets will include some “tasty” musicians, such as Brazilian-style guitarist and songstress Tera Crisalida, rootsy rock unplugged by longtime Valley stalwarts Ronnie Glover with Jack Alves, unique piano forays by internationally known Elijah Bossenbroek, brilliant solo acoustic guitar by John Calvert and many others.

So grab your appetite for culture and “ArtWalk the Line” just west of Scottsdale Rd. along Main Street and on Marshall Way north of Indian School Road to Fifth Avenue. There are plenty of nearby free parking areas, and the Scottsdale Arts District is easily accessible via free Scottsdale Trolleys or horse-drawn carriage rides.
