June Days Gold Palette ArtWalk upcoming in Old Town


The Scottsdale Gallery Association is presenting its specially themed June Days Gold Palette ArtWalk, which takes place throughout the Scottsdale Arts District 6:30–9 p.m. on Thursday, June 8.

The ArtWalk corelates with the city of Scottsdale’s June Days summer spectacular, which serves as an opportunity to celebrate the season throughout Old Town, a press release stated.

“Even though it may feel like it, summer is not quite here yet,” Scottsdale Gallery Association President French Thompson said in the release. “But the vibe of summertime — relaxing, enjoyment and just appreciation for the season is already alive and well in the Scottsdale Arts District. We look forward to celebrating the season and June Days with the community and art enthusiasts during this event.”

Scottsdale Arts District is along Main Street from Scottsdale Road to Goldwater Boulevard and north of Indian School Road on Marshall Way to Fifth Avenue.

In addition to live entertainment and refreshing surprises throughout the Scottsdale Arts District, participating galleries will host their own in-gallery events including:

Carstens Fine Art Studio & Gallery

  • 7100 E. Main St., suite B
  • During the ArtWalk, guests are invited to come in and cool down while enjoying the melodies of professional harpist Jocelyn Obermeyer as she performs live inside the gallery.

French Designer Jeweler

  • 7148 E. Main St.
  • French Designer Jeweler specializes in colored gems, which are more rare and beautiful than diamonds. As a nod to the vibrancy of the season, French Designer Jeweler will be highlighting the beauty of colored gems throughout June from the likes of artists Alex Sepkus, Barbara Heinrich and Petra Class who use beautiful colored gemstones in their work.

The Marshall Gallery

  • 7106 E. Main St.
  • During the June Days ArtWalk, The Marshall Gallery hosts artists Joseph Maruska and Paige Pierson, whose art represents a range of painting styles that showcase realism and abstraction. Maruska’s abstract pieces have layers of texture and depth for letting the eye wander. Capturing the beauty of the desert, Pierson’s work blends landscapes with hyper-realistic painting. Guests are invited to come in for a complimentary beverage, meet the artists and watch them paint during the event.

On the Edge Gallery

  • 7045 E. Main St.
  • On the Edge Gallery celebrates warmth, a lightness of spirit and a fresh focus on fun during the June Days ArtWalk. Guests are invited to meet four innovative artists — Shelly Hackett, Tracy Laasch, Vicki McKenna and Cindy Snider — who bring warm weather vitality to the gallery through their art. Guests can meet these artists, explore their creations and take home summery art.

The Signature Gallery

  • 7177 E. Main St.
  • ArtWalk attendees can view the gallery’s new collection from internationally recognized impressionist painter Robert Hagan. The gallery will be showcasing Hagan’s recent creations and invite guests to enjoy refreshments.

Wilde Meyer Gallery

  • 4142 N. Marshall Way
  • In conjunction with the city of Scottsdale’s “June Days,” Wilde Meyer Gallery is presenting a group show of summery art during the ArtWalk.

In partnership with the City of Scottsdale, the SGA also presents multiple Gold Palette ArtWalk events per year that feature a dedicated theme and activities specific to each theme including demonstrations and live entertainment. The Scottsdale Gallery Association also hosts its weekly ArtWalk most Thursday evenings from 7–9 p.m.
