AZ0608004e002 - Carefree Art Night in Cave Creek and Carefree - Every Friday from November through the first Friday in May, Cave Creek and Carefree art galleries sponsor Art Night from 6 p.m. till 9 p.m. The six months of Art Night, an unprecedented collaboration among the two towns, their art galleries, and local restaurants, provide an opportunity for Valley residents to familiarize themselves with the fine arts and unique dining that make Cave Creek and Carefree such an exceptional destination.

Although the galleries are spaced from one end of Cave Creek to the far end of Carefree, many are located within walking distance of one another and horse drawn carriages are available for those who prefer to ride from gallery to gallery.

Eleven galleries enthusiastically support the concept and remain open until 9 p.m. every Friday. Some restaurants are open as well with special appetizers, entrees or desserts to accommodate Art Night visitors.

FEATURED FRIDAYS - On the first Friday of every month, the galleries will be featuring new show openings, artist receptions, and demonstrations. Featured Fridays will be an exciting and fun addition to the other Friday nights, giving visitors an opportunity to plan in advance for an evening filled with surprises.

The Festival features a wide variety of both functional and non-functional objects of art, produced by celebrated artists, such as painters, sculptors, jewelers, and photographers, among others. Glass, ceramics, wood, metal, bronze, stone, beaded leather, and designer clothing are among the mediums represented. Along with Sonoran Art League members, renowned artists from across the United States will participate in this event.

Art lectures and hands-on art demonstrations will be presented each day at 10am and 2:30pm. Entertainment, music, and song will fill the air daily from 11am to 2pm in the Amphitheater area, where food and beverage vendors will be offering a variety of cuisine. Sonoran Arts League Ambassadors will be available to assist visitors in exploring the Festival's many features. Special interest booths dedicated to wildlife, animal rescue, special needs assistance dogs, and desert preservation will be nestled in the Center's garden area.
