Create Your ARTScrawl and ARTful Saturday Gallery Tours!

The Albuquerque First Friday ARTScrawl and ARTful Saturday are self-guided gallery walking tours that take place each month. We provide a listing of participating member galleries with details about their current shows and you use our listings and gallery map to plan your custom tour.

FIRST FRIDAY ARTSCRAWL
The citywide Albuquerque ARTScrawl occurs on the first Friday of every month.

ARTFUL SATURDAY
An Artful Saturday event takes place on the third Saturday of every month. The event rotates between Old Town, Route 66, and The Heights so check our listings for each month’s location!

SPECIAL EVENTS
Some of our members present events that don’t fall on the first Friday or third Saturday, we still want you to know about them! Our Special Events section includes our members’ non-ARTScrawl events.
