Over the hill? Not this 40-year-old. “America’s Original ArtWalk” keeps getting better with age, and this year the Scottsdale Artwalk turns 40 and celebrates this landmark birthday. Galleries along Main Street and Marshall Way in downtown Scottsdale have kept their doors open late since the 1970s. Each Thursday, Scottsdale ArtWalk brings together gallery owners, artists, visitors and locals. Wander the marked paths at your own pace, browse the selection of galleries, and enjoy small bites and live music along the way. You’ll see Western art at Trailside Galleries, Soviet-era paintings at Gallery Russia, and contemporary art at Calvin Charles Gallery, among others. Plus, shop for unique gifts from local artist co-op On the Edge Gallery. The celebration kicks off with the Anniversary ArtWalk on Oct. 2, and the season includes highlights like The Big Game ArtWalk on Jan. 31, 2015 and the 4th Annual Native Arts ArtWalk on March 5, 2015.
