Summer Spectacular: ArtWalk

Summer Spectacular

Thursday, July 11, 2019 | 6:30 to 9:00 p.m.
The Scottsdale Gallery Association is pleased to announce the return of its Summer Spectacular Scottsdale ArtWalk. Taking 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, the Summer Spectacular will be the “coolest” art event of the season!

On Thursday, July 11 from 6: 00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., art enthusiasts are invited to take a virtual vacation to the tropics — while enjoying cool, refreshing drinks and ice-cold treats from Ice Cream Sociables including custom ice cream bowls and iced espressos. To coincide with the tropical-travel theme, participating galleries are set to display exhibits and artworks by national and international artists, lending itself to the “vacation vibe” of this art walk.

“We are pleased to give our art enthusiasts a ‘cool’ and unique way to experience our weekly ArtWalk during the summer,” says French Thompson, president of the Scottsdale Gallery Association. “With an ice-cold sip or treat — and a little imagination — we hope to inspire guests to feel as though they’re on a little vacation getaway during our Summer Spectacular.”

Participating galleries will also be featuring cooling libations and treats within their studios, with live music and other entertainment on the street—including a steel drum band playing the sounds of the tropics.

More than 39 Old Town Scottsdale galleries are represented in the Scottsdale Gallery Association as members and participate in the SGA’s weekly art walks and special events. Galleries represent a wide array of art mediums including paintings from traditional landscape and portrait to contemporary works, sculptures, photography and one-of-a-kind jewelry.
