The second Saturday evening of the month is a festive occasion here in Eureka Springs, at least April through December. Art galleries open their doors from 6 – 9 p.m. for the 2nd Saturday Gallery Stroll, highlighting special shows and artist receptions. People wander from gallery to gallery, admiring art. More than one guest of our Eureka Springs Bed and Breakfast has returned from the Gallery Stroll with a new treasure tucked under the arm.

The galleries of Eureka Springs.

Eureka Springs has often been labeled a “Top Twenty-five Arts Destination” in the United States, and with good reason. The galleries located in the historic downtown village routinely showcase the work of over a thousand artists. There is literally something for every taste: raku pottery, bronze sculptures, glass art, oil paintings, and much, much more.

Our Eureka Springs Bed and Breakfast is close to the Historic Downtown area and the 2nd Saturday Gallery Stroll. Guests who don’t mind walking up and down some pretty impressive hills may leave their cars at the inn and leisurely stroll to and from art. Parking is available for those who would rather drive.

Read on for a brief summary of art galleries participating in the 2nd Saturday Gallery Stroll:
83 Spring Street Gallery. The Flagship Studio Gallery of nationally recognized bronze sculptor Mark Hopkins; also showcases work by many fine artists.
Eureka Thyme Gallery. Arts and crafts by local artists.
Fusion Squared Gallery. Hand-crafted fused glass art of John Rinhehart and work by nationally recognized artists.
