North Scottsdale is about to get 6,000-square-feet more artsy.
Beginning next month, the Arizona Art Alliance Gallery will open its doors in the Scottsdale Pavilions Shopping Center, 9011 East Indian Bend Road, Suite E-1. The circa 2000, all-volunteer organization that includes more than 4,000 artists from 28 Arizona art groups, guilds, and leagues, plans to use the space for arts education and gallery shows.
There'll be a grand-opening bash lasting from Friday, October 1 through Sunday, October 3, that includes artist talks, demos, and the opening of a juried gallery show on the Saturday from 6 to 9 p.m.
Current gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesdays through Sundays. Call 602-870-7610 or check out www.azartalliance.com.
