Just about every taste in art can be found on the Art Walk. It's not as good as in the Hey Days when many galleries offered wine tasting and appetizers. Take some extra time to stop for a glass of wine at the many bars and wine bars scattered about.

We walked through on our way to the Farmers Market and loved seeing so much creativity on display, both inside the galleries and outside of them. The bonus was the mainly acoustic musicians playing on the corners. They didn't drown each other out at all.

Thursday night artists come out to show & sell their work and it is worth a look. Beautiful jewelry, art work, etc. Great prices and really personable people. Highly recommend a look if you have time.

Arizona has just change the laws. Allowing local wineries to have frontage and taste wines in their shops. Enjoy the masterpieces of art along the walk and the fantastic galleries and wine tasting.

We spent 3 happy afternoons browsing the Main Street Art Galleries. The Art Walk on Thursday evening was a good opportunity to meet some of the artists, whose work we admired or had even bought.

Many of the galleries are open and often have artists they represent in house for the Thurs evening art events. It's a great way to learn both about the art and the artist; how they accomplish what they do and also about their heritage and culture. Highly recommend

We wandered into this area and browsed some of the shops. It was a Sunday and many were closed. We were very impressed with the artwork. Most were way over our head - price wise, but if we had the money, this would be a place to shop.

If you like southwest jewelry and art there is a huge selection here. Many of the same stores are offering a lot of the same Indian jewelry and pottery, mixed in with several high end art galleries offering oil.paintings,glass art and sculpture. The Arts District is a good place to stroll for 2-3 hours and there are many restaurants mixed... More
