Our Next Event
Thursday, June 9, 2022 | 6:30 to 9:00 p.m.
This summer, the Scottsdale Gallery Association is pleased to announce the return of its specially themed June Days Gold Palette ArtWalk. From 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Thursday, guests can enjoy a cool experience that coincides with the City of Scottsdale’s June Days summer spectacular, which celebrates the season and all there is to see and do throughout Old Town.
The event 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 evoking a cool vacation getaway experience.
“Our June Days Gold Palette ArtWalk celebrates all things summer… and all things Scottsdale, especially our vibrant art community,” says Scottsdale Gallery Association President French Thompson. “We are cooling things off with great entertainment, refreshing libations and bites so our guests can simply chill out, stroll about and enjoy a beautiful Scottsdale evening at the onset of summertime.”
In addition to live entertainment and refreshing surprises along the Scottsdale Arts District, participating galleries will host their own in-gallery event:
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 designed to get guests into the summertime spirit. Participating galleries will present special exhibits that pay homage to an Arizona summer and offer refreshing sips to keep guests cool. Participating galleries include:
Bonner David Galleries
7040 E. Main St.
Figurative artist Ron Hicks’ latest exhibit The Heart of the Matter will be highlighted during the ArtWalk. Exploring the core of who people are, the way they react and the way they respond to what’s in their hearts, the exhibit showcases Hicks’ ability to find beauty in little things.
Carstens Fine Art Studio & Gallery
7100 E. Main St., #B
Artist and gallery owner Cyndy Carstens will host several local artists during the ArtWalk and will be featuring live music inside the gallery for guests to enjoy.
The Marshall Gallery

During the ArtWalk, guests can observe featured artists Elena Golberg, Harper Henry and Joseph Maruska in their creative element, live painting, while enjoying complimentary beverages. This is an ideal opportunity for guests to meet and greet with the artists and learn about their processes.
On the Edge Gallery
7045 E. Main St.
As a nod to Arizona’s summer, On the Edge is presenting some of its “hottest” artwork (within its cool gallery). Guests can meet and mingle artists Bruce Boyce, Jonathan Harmon and Susanne Moore during the event.
Wilde Meyer Gallery
4142 N. Marshall Way
During the ArtWalk, Wilde Meyer Gallery will present a group show of gallery artists including Timothy Chapman, Brenda Bredvik, Ryan Hale and many more.
