Gold Palette ArtWalk on Feb. 2 coincides with Scottsdale Western Week


On Thursday, Feb. 2 in alignment with the city of Scottsdale’s Western Week event, the Scottsdale Gallery Association presents its Western Week Gold Palette ArtWalk. 

Taking place from 6:30 to 9 p.m. throughout the Scottsdale Arts District — along Main Street from Scottsdale Road to Goldwater Boulevard and north of Indian School Road on Marshall Way to 5th Avenue — attendees can enjoy authentic Native and Western artists and artwork, live performances and special exhibitions within participating galleries.

“While Scottsdale has evolved greatly from its Old West roots, there is still much to celebrate and honor about its history as well as the culture that exists in the city today,” said Scottsdale Gallery Association President French Thompson in the release.

“Our Western Week ArtWalk is an opportunity for us to shine the light on our Western heritage and showcase Western art in many mediums from incredible artists from near and far.”

In addition to Western-themed entertainment taking place throughout the Scottsdale Arts District, attendees can peruse Scottsdale Gallery Association member galleries, many of which are hosting their own individual events in correlation with the ArtWalk. 

Participating galleries include:

• Carstens Fine Art Studio & Gallery, 7100 E. Main St., #B

Carstens Fine Art will be showcasing artworks inspired by the skies and landscapes of the West and Southwest including framed oil-on-linen pieces such as “DayDream Antics” by Artist Cyndy Carstens. Guests are invited to enjoy live music and light refreshments inside the gallery during the event.

• Gebert Contemporary, 7160 E. Main St.

The gallery is featuring prints by Fritz Scholder, fine art photography by Werner Segarra, graphite drawings by Clayton Porter and paintings and augmented-reality works by James Angel during the ArtWalk. Works will remain on exhibition through March 1.

During an exclusive VIP meet and greet from 5 to 9 p.m., guests can mix and mingle with artists Michael Lotenero, Kathy Taylor and Tyler Swain while enjoying live painting demonstrations and complimentary beverages.

• The Signature Gallery, 7177 E. Main St.

The Signature Gallery will feature internationally recognized Impressionist Painter Manuel G. Avendano, one of the gallery’s top artists. During the event, Avendano will debut his latest collection of original paradisiacal oil paintings on hand-stretched canvas.
