September temperatures may be a little cooler, but Gallery Walk is still HOT! A huge thank you to all those who helped us celebrate Gallery Walk’s 33rd anniversary last month, we look forward to continuing the fun this month as well.
Held the first Friday of every month since 1989 in its scenic and historic downtown, Hot Springs’ monthly Gallery Walk features the opening of new art exhibitions showcased in downtown fine art galleries and studio spaces. From contemporary to traditional, the diverse offerings of Gallery Walk arts and cultural scene place Hot Springs as the place to be the first Friday of each month.
