“Our art walks have become world-renowned as one of the few places where visitors can easily park, take a leisurely stroll and see a great variety of museum-caliber art from all genres,” Holly Bohling, who serves on the board of the Scottsdale Gallery Association, said in the release. She also is gallery manager and co-founder of one of the participating galleries, Amery Bohling Fine Art.

Galleries represent a wide array of art mediums including paintings from traditional landscape and portrait to contemporary works, sculptures, photography and one-of-a-kind jewelry.

“Visitors may even have an opportunity to meet a master artist and talk with them about their creative expressions,” Ms. Bohling said in the release.

“And when they are ready to stop for dinner or a drink, we have lovely places to dine in the midst of all the beautiful artistry,” she said.

More than 39 Downtown Scottsdale galleries are represented in the Scottsdale Gallery Association as members and participate in the SGA’s weekly art walks and special events.
