June Days Gold Palette ArtWalk
June 24 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
On Thursday, June 24 from 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., the Scottsdale Gallery Association hosts a specially themed Gold Palette ArtWalk in correlation with the City of Scottsdale’s June Days summer spectacular, which celebrates the season and honors the city’s 70th anniversary.
The Gold Palette ArtWalk takes place throughout the Scottsdale Arts District — along Main Street from Scottsdale Road to Goldwater Boulevard and north of Indian School on Marshall Way to 5th Avenue — and features refreshments and live entertainment designed to celebrate summer in Arizona while inspiring a vacation vibe.
“We’re excited to share in the fun of June Days with the City of Scottsdale and present yet another fun opportunity for our art-loving community to support the local art scene,” says Scottsdale Gallery Association President French Thompson. “With some great music and delicious refreshments to cool things down on a beautiful Scottsdale evening — what more could you ask for?”
One of eight annual Gold Palette ArtWalks hosted by the Scottsdale Gallery Association with participation of member art studios and galleries, the June Days ArtWalk will be set to the tunes of a live steel drum band. Participating galleries will present special exhibits that pay homage to an Arizona summer and offer refreshing sips to keep guests cool.
Participating galleries with themed exhibits and refreshments include:
