On the 2nd Saturday of each month, many local Sacramento galleries feature new shows of individual and collective artists. Many galleries play host to the artists so it's a wonderful way to meet them in person. Some galleries provide beverages, hors d'oeuvres, live music, and even dinner with the artist!
Since many galleries are grouped into two main areas in Sacramento: Midtown and along Del Paso Blvd. (The Uptown Arts District), many people like to take an Art Walk and wander from gallery to gallery, making and evening of art and people viewing. More galleries and venues can be found in Old Sacramento and Downtown Sacramento, as well as in outlying areas including Folsom and Fair Oaks.
Individual listings for gallery shows and receptions can be found in Sacramento365.com's 2nd Saturday category.
