June Days

Thursday, June 6, 2024 | 6:30 to 9:00 p.m.

In celebration of summer, things are heating up in the Scottsdale Arts District, which stretches along Main St. from Scottsdale Rd. to Goldwater Blvd. and north of Indian School Rd. on Marshall Way to 5th Ave. On Thursday, June 6, the Scottsdale Gallery Association (SGA) and participating member galleries present the June Days Gold Palette ArtWalk in conjunction with the city of Scottsdale’s June Days summer spectacular. Guests can take in live music and cool refreshments as they stroll through the district and enjoy masterpieces that evoke summertime vibes.

“Summertime in Scottsdale is a perfect time for locals to really embrace everything we love about the area, including our robust art community,” said Scottsdale Gallery Association President French Thompson. “We invite everyone to come out for a beautiful summer evening filled with entertainment and some of the most incredible art from local, national and even international artists.”

The following galleries are featuring special summer-themed exhibitions and events within their storefronts during the event:

Altamira Fine Art
7038 E. Main St.
During the June Days ArtWalk, Altamira Fine Art will be highlighting the stunning works of Arizona artists Kenneth Peloke and Geoffrey Gersten. Peloke’s art depicts “wild characters” both animals and people that embrace the freedom to roam, much as the artist himself is inclined to do. Gersten’s current exhibition at Altamira showcases nostalgic, sometimes black and white, images of the past that have been vibrantly brought to life by dramatic pops of color.

Carstens Fine Art Studio & Gallery
7100 E. Main St., #B
During the Artwalk, Carstens Fine Art Studio & Gallery is pleased to present a Celebration of Summer featuring painting demonstrations, live music and light refreshments.

Gebert Contemporary Art Gallery
7160 E. Main St.
Gebert Contemporary will be showcasing several uniquely summery pieces by Arizona artist Cher Juracich.

On the Edge Gallery

Get out of the heat and step in to the cool haven of creativity at On the Edge Gallery! Vibrant paintings and intricate sculptures and much more will be on display and guests can meet Lynn Gustafson, fused glass artist, and Cindy Snider, acrylic abstract and geometric artist.

Pavilion Fine Arts
7034 E. Main St.
Celebrate the inauguration of the summer season with June Days at the Pavilion Fine Arts Gallery. Local artist Laura Madden will be demonstrating her transformative contemporary art. Take the opportunity to escape to your favorite summer activity from sailing, boating at the lake, or enjoying the beach as you view Jenny Floravita’s mixed media Hawaiian ocean landscapes or Jon Wendell’s captivating views of Lake Powell and beautiful Hawaiian beaches. 

The Signature Gallery
7177 E. Main St.
ArtWalk attendees are invited to immerse themselves into the captivating world of woodwork through the eyes and art of Greg Campbell. Each of his pieces tell a story and evoke a sense of wonder through the grains and curves of the wood vessels.

In celebration of the season, Wilde Meyer Gallery presents an exhibition featuring summery art by a variety of gallery favorite artists including Greg Dye, Dara Daniel, Kristin Harvey and more.

Xanadu Gallery
7039 E. Main St., #101
Xanadu Gallery is featuring works by award-winning photographic artist Elisabeth Ladwig, whose work is the convergence of photography, graphic design and collage art. Fueling her creations is a grade-school revelation connecting science, nature and magic: the idea that all of life’s mysteries fall within the parameters of scientific explanation, that science abides by the Laws of Nature and that all of it is magical.

The Gold Palette ArtWalk brings together the finest art in Scottsdale including 28 galleries and two museums — Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art and Western Spirit: Scottsdale’s Museum of the West. The Scottsdale Gallery Association hosts its weekly ArtWalk most every Thursday evening from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. In partnership with the City of Scottsdale, the SGA also presents several Gold Palette ArtWalk events per year that feature a dedicated theme and activities specific to the theme including demonstrations and more.
