Scottsdale Art Walk


I decided to go for a walk along Main Street in Scottsdale yesterday evening and it just happened to be a Scottsdale Art Walk night.  So I went with the flow and started visiting one gallery after another. Over the next few days, I'll take you along with me on my gallery walk.

First up is this bronze sculpture by Greg Woodard. I was drawn to the uniqueness of this piece called Indian Head Penny.  Woodard was born in Prescott Arizona and is a self-taught artist.  I believe the gallery attendant said he now lives in Utah.


I told the lady at the gallery that it was worthy of being in the Scottsdale Museum of the West and she told me that he does have one piece in the at museum.  It's the one to the left called Buffalo Head Nickel.   You can see more of Gary Woodard's art here.

That's a great looking piece, such detail.

Very vivid sculptural work in both cases!

I really like them both, Sharon!

I, too, am partial to the painting. Kind of reminds me of some of Fritz Scholder's work.

I like the painting also, they are all striking pieces. That was a stroke of luck happening across the tour group like that Sharon, it was meant to be!

This kind of art is what I miss the most about our Santa Fe vacations!!
