What is Sacramento's Second Saturday Art Walk?

VISIT OUR NEW WEBSITE:


April, 2008: the new OFFICIAL 2nd Saturday website is up and running! →

On the second Saturday of each month, galleries in Sacramento, California stay open for a Sacramento Art Walk late into the evening, allowing people to walk from gallery to gallery, viewing, experiencing and discovering local art galleries and meeting artists. 

Second Saturday is a night to wander about, visit galleries and have fun!  You can meet the artists, people watch, socialize and enjoy time with friends and maybe buy a piece of art or two and then enjoy a bite to eat at one of the dozens of restaurants. 

 While galleries all over Sacramento participate, galleries are clustered into two main areas:  Midtown Sacramento and along Del Paso Boulevard in the Uptown Art District.  Both of these areas supports a thriving and innovative arts community.  The venues' close proximity, walkable streets, interesting boutiques and restaurants make these areas perfect for a leisurely walk.  More galleries are opening in downtown and Old Sacramento, as well.  Download & print a map.  Want to know where to start?  You can also view a listing of current shows & exhibitions by local galleries.  To learn more about 2nd Saturdays, visit our page on What is Second Saturday?

Many galleries are open regular hours during the week as well - so don't just visit on Second Saturday - visit galleries anytime!

We recommend visiting galleries FIRST then grabbing a bite to eat - as most galleries close by 9pm; however most restaurants stay open late on Second Saturdays.  Still have questions?  VIsit our Common Questions about 2nd Saturdays

Mother-daughter team of Diane and Dawn teamed up a to provide cool art and floral arrangements and was a big destination on Second Saturdays. A few years ago the business down-sized to being a floral design company when Diane moved to San Francisco. Ruby joined the team a couple of years ago and Diane is now back in Sacramento and the three women are making a SPLASH back onto the Sacramento art scene with their new location at 1801 L Street!

          

  

 

We apologize that the website "WHAT'S NEW" isn't as extensive as it usually is - It's a crazy week for the guy who runs this website - AND WAIT TILL NEXT MONTH - we will be rolling out a COMPLETELY NEW WEBSITE!!!

The Artist's Collaborative Gallery

HAS CLOSED!

They're looking for a new space

The Artists' Collaborative Gallery, organized by local and regional artists, recently moved from its former Old Sacramento address to 910 15th Street, between I and J Streets. The new gallery site is just around the corner from the Sacramento Convention Center and across the street from the Sacramento Memorial Auditorium. The ACG has been in existence for more than 25 years and features the work of highly talented award-winning artists from a wide variety of creative backgrounds. Visitors to the gallery will find fine art [oil, pastel, acrylic, watercolor, collage, etc.], glass, ceramics, photography, jewelry, sculpture, gourds, wood and textiles.
