The Scottsdale Gallery Association is ringing in 2022 with its annual “Demonstration… and Donuts” Gold Palette ArtWalk, from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m., on Thursday, Jan. 13.
Guests can enjoy live entertainment from bagpipers as they stroll the streets of the Scottsdale Arts District — Main Street from Scottsdale Road to Goldwater Boulevard and north of Indian School on Marshall Way to 5th Avenue.
Participating galleries will also feature live artists’ demonstrations and donut sampling, according to a press release.
The event serves as fundraiser for the 100 Club of Arizona, a non-profit organization that has provided assistance to statewide public safety agencies, officers, firefighters and EMT/paramedics as well as their families since 1968.
In addition to live demonstrations and sampling sweet treats, guests can enjoy music by traditional bagpipe performers, the release said.
“The Scottsdale police and fire departments put their lives on the [line] for the safety, security and protection of our residents and businesses and we could not be more grateful for their selfless service,” according to Scottsdale Gallery Association President French Thompson in the release.
“Our annual Demonstrations… and Donuts ArtWalk serves as a fun way for us to shine a much-deserved spotlight on these everyday heroes while giving our art lovers a unique way to support them while enjoying fantastic art and entertainment.”
