Visit the Gilbert ArtWalk
January 14, 2016
If you’ve never been out to experience the Gilbert ArtWalk, there’s a lot you’ve been missing! Since September of 2011, artists have been bringing their best visual arts out to one of the most popular Gilbert events and showcasing their work for the public to see. Here’s more info on this great event that supports local artists and businesses.
The Gilbert Art Walk started in 2011 as an evening event. In 2012, Timelessbuttons, LLC, the organization that hosts the Gilbert ArtWalk coordinated with the GIlbert Farmers Market to bring a day of shopping, entertainment and art to the East Valley. Art forms include pottery, photography, jewelry, clothing, sculptures, prints, collages and children’s art products. Live music and dance performances also add to the ambiance.
