Scottsdale Art Galleries:
From traditional oils to western art and glass art to pottery, Downtown Scottsdale Art Walk has an endless assortment of art smithereens. Apart from art galleries, the area also features two museums within the walking distance for contemporary and western art respectively. On Thursday evenings, none of the streets like Marshall Way, Main Street and others are closed. This makes the parking worry-free as you can park right on the street but only if you are lucky enough to reach before time.
Speaking of the art galleries, most prominent contemporary galleries are along the Marshal Way and else everything is on Main Street. There is a Scottsdale art gallery literally one after another where some of them have artists and others have music and wine. Each of the Scottsdale Art Galleries is incredibly nice where you can go for fun and amusement. Some of the must watch galleries include: –
Gebert Contemporary: This modern day art gallery presents several shows and art-pieces of some legendary artists like Fritz Scholder. The famous painting Purgatory’ by Fritz Scholder is exhibited here. The painting reveals a monstrous face tattooed with the title A Proclamation’. Another great work of Elliot McDowell is displayed in this art gallery which is a black-and-white photo of Scholder with a buffalo and is named Fritz and Friends’.
Paul Scott Gallery: This wonderful gallery displays the notable works relevant to flamboyantly colored landscapes of Larisa Aukon. One of the most eye-catching paintings of the gallery is vibrantly colored semi-abstract landscape by Toni Doilney. The works put on show in this gallery are super-awesome and must watch for any nature lover.
Tilt Gallery: The gallery demonstrates unique photographs of some well-known photographers. The gallery includes an extraordinary photograph of the desert and of Lacock Abbey in England. The prints of these photographs may be found little gauzy but they are compelling in every way.
