The Second Saturday of each month is all about art in historic downtown Eureka Springs. Art galleries stay open until 9 p.m., with special events taking place between 6 and 9 p.m. Anyone and everyone is welcome to pop in and out of all the galleries.
The Second Saturday Gallery Stroll starts up on April 14 and runs through December 8, 2012. Each month highlights different artists with exhibits and receptions. It’s a wonderful time to browse the many art galleries in downtown Eureka Springs, admiring art.
Have an early dinner, then head out to stroll. Or start with drinks and take a break from strolling with dinner. Participating galleries are located throughout the historic downtown area, close to many good eateries. Keels Creek Winery, located a bit outside of town, features both art and wine.
