Artwalk was created by the Gallery District Association to attract art lovers and tourists to the area. Its members are recognizable by a distinctive circular plaque posted on each gallery. Exhibiting genres from paintings and sculpture to ceramics and folk art, it’s easy to fall in love with a favorite piece. The Gallery District is compact and easy to walk. From Plaza Mijares, cross the street to the church and turn right. You’ll first find La Sacristia with art, sculptures, fine pottery and ceramics. Established Mexican contemporary artists are at the Patricia Mendoza Gallery on the corner of Calle Hidalgo and Obregon. Further on to the left, view contemporary art and sculpture from Spain’s Basque artist Enrique Bascón. A few doors away, Corsica’s museum quality fine art and sculptures are from renowned Mexican Masters and upcoming talents. Desértica’s eclectic contemporary art and collectibles and Mata Ortiz’s exquisite Paquime pottery from Chihuahua State are next, bringing you to Calle Morelos. Turn left for some of Baja’s top contemporary and abstract art at Leah Porter’s Casa Dahlia (open by appointment only), a few doors up. Back on Obregon at the corner of Morelos there’s charming El Armario for Mexican folk art, handicrafts and paintings. Continuing up Obregon is Caravane, a modern interior design center and gallery with a broad range of beautiful objects. Ivan Guaderrama’s gallery of contemporary Christian paintings and sculptures is up the street. Nearby, the Old Town Gallery’s seasoned artists capture the color, culture and light of Baja California Sur with paintings in realistic genres. At the corner of Calle Guerrero, turn left and walk up to Ida Victoria Gustafson’s striking two- story gallery with a colorful, eclectic collection of original art and sculpture from well known North American and Mexican artists. Don’t miss the internationally known abstract painter and sculptor, Frank Arnold, whose eye-catching gallery is on Calle Comonfort, facing Calle Centenario. At the foot of Morelos, stop in at Plaza Paulina for Julian Garcia’s Arte gallery with paintings and distinctive sculptures in bronze, steel and stone. If you’re driving, park close to Morelos on Calle Centenario, the boulevard that runs behind the Gallery District. For easiest access, park close to Morelos Street and walk in from there. You’ll immediately be drawn into a charming and festive atmosphere. If you miss out on Artwalk, plan to visit the Art District another day.
