Gallery Stroll is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization funded by sponsorships and grants. We are dedicated to promoting the visual arts in Salt Lake City.

History

Founded by the Salt Lake Gallery Association in 1983, Gallery Stroll began as a small consortium of fine art galleries. Today, as a separate non-profit organization, the Salt Lake Gallery Stroll encompasses the majority of galleries and visual-arts related businesses in Salt Lake City. The goal remains same...to promote the best art Salt Lake City has to offer.

To that end, on the third Friday of each month, galleries and other businesses that support visual artists stay open late, providing an opportunity for art enthusiasts to tour their exhibits after hours. In December, Gallery Stroll is held on the first Friday of the month.

In May we facilitate the annual Gallery Roll as a part of National Bike Month.

Mission

The Salt Lake Gallery Stroll strives to promote and provide access to the expression, appreciation, and understanding of the visual arts in Salt Lake City and to increase the reputation of Utah artists and art organizations locally, nationally and internationally.

We seek to remove intellectual, social and physical barriers to the enjoyment and understanding of visual art and encourage awareness of Salt Lake City’s diverse visual art community.

We strive to broaden the local audience interested in visual arts and improve the quality of their experiences.
