Summer Spectacular ArtWalk
Thurs., July 11, 2013, 7 - 9 p.m.
Scottsdale Arts District

One of the Valley’s favorite July events always draws hundreds to the “coolness” of the Scottsdale Arts District. The 24th annual Summer Spectacular ArtWalk is sure to provide another great midsummer’s entertainment this year on Thurs., July 11 from 7 to 9 pm, presented by the Scottsdale Gallery Association and Scottsdale Downtown.

ArtWalkers can “chill out” as they “ArtWalk the Line” along Main Street and Marshall Way where dozens of fine art galleries will be busy with artist demonstrations, exhibit openings and special receptions.

Among private gallery receptions, Bonner David Gallery will feature a special artist reception for “Life’s a Beach,” a show that revives and refreshes the senses, complete with tropical drinks that complement a selection of their finest artists: Quim Bove, Ron Burns, Michael Carson, Max Hammond, Dyana Hesson, Claudia Hartley, Francis Livingston, John Schieffer, Ramona Youngquist and others.

Wilde Meyer Gallery will feature live painting by Andrea Peterson as part of its new exhibition, “The Local Scene.” Their showcase features diverse artwork including landscapes, figure paintings and abstracts created by local Arizona-based artists.

Legacy Gallery presents its annual group show “Legacy Of The Southwest.” This long-running exhibition brings together many favorite gallery artists, including Laura Robb, Dan Young, Tom Dorr, Gayle Nason, Mary Qian, Joni Falk, Greg English, Dick Heichberger, Trevor Swanson and Alvin Marshall.

Calvin Charles Gallery presents nationally renowned artist, Stephanie Paige, painting live from 5-9pm with a special unveiling of her new painting, "Majestic Sun,” at 8pm. Stephanie Page creates large-scale, textured paintings. Inspired by nature, the compassion of her work evokes memories of stunning ocean views and landscapes. The horizon lines, rich fields of color, textural details and smooth transitions between lines illustrate her exceptional skill.

Cool off at On the Edge Art Gallery as artists perform demonstrations, creating ‘hot’ new summer-themed pieces! Listen to live music and enjoy ‘cool’ iced drinks and summer edibles. Mini Styrofoam Coolers, artfully painted by gallery artists, will be given away to the first 20 customers making qualified purchases, so ArtWalkers get their hands on fresh art ready to use this summer! Onlookers can meet featured artist Jenny Willigrod, whose work is featured in the Summer Spectacular Artwalk flyer, and enjoy some spectacular summer sales by selected gallery artists.

Live music on the streets will create a festive atmosphere with the island sounds of steel drummer Keith Johnson, the mystical keyboard stylings of Grady Soine, the unusual Chinese zither sounds of LauRha Frankfort, the contemporary folk-rock of singer-keyboardist Nicki Park, and others.

The Scottsdale Arts District can be found just west of Scottsdale Rd. along Main Street and on Marshall Way north of Indian School Road to Fifth Avenue. There’s plenty of nearby free parking, free trolley rides, great people watching and easy access to local hotels or famed Scottsdale eateries.
