Gold Palette ArtWalk celebrates spring | Arts & Entertainment

The Scottsdale Gallery Association will hold its spring Gold Palette ArtWalk 6:30-9 pm Thursday, Apr. 14.

The Spring into Art event — along Main Street from Scottsdale Road to Goldwater Boulevard and north of Indian School on Marshall Way to 5th Avenue — will feature an homage to the season as guests enjoy live music and refreshments.

“Spring is an amazing time to explore the city of Scottsdale for both visitors and residents,” said Scottsdale Gallery Association President French Thompson. “It’s the most beautiful time of year to get out, stroll the streets of Old Town and simply enjoy all the area has to offer. For art enthusiasts, we’re showing the incredible breadth of artists represented within the Scottsdale Arts District that celebrate spring through their various mediums.”

Participating galleries include:

Carstens Fine Art. A reception will include new paintings, live music by professional harpist Jocelyn Obermeyer and refreshments.

French Designer Jeweller. One of this gallery’s new artists, Elizabeth Garvin, will show her new collection, Stripe, which features a new approach to ornamentation, glowing 18k gold, deeply engraved with stripes and paired with a wide assortment of precious gems. Each pattern is drawn and entirely engraved by hand and each pattern is just a little different than the next.

The Legacy Gallery. Paintings by Kathy Anderson and Daniel Keys will be featured along with stunning small floral paintings by Laura Robb.

The Marshall Gallery. Frank Balaam’s colorful oil paintings will be highlighted during a reception.

On the Edge Gallery. Guests can meet several artists, including abstract artist Lori Call, who uses inks, collage, spray paint, acrylic and oils to build the images of enchanted places and dream-like possibilities; Sandy Newell, who specializes in watercolor using a pouring technique to create unexpected textures and reactions; and Lorita Winfield, whose photographic floral art expresses her passion for the play of light on flower petals and natural foliage.

The Signature Gallery. Local artist Cara Moran will display her sensationally colorful original impasto oil paintings. Striking colors, rich layers of texture applied with a palette knife, and an unmistakably positive energy are key elements Moran’s unique style. Among her most popular subjects are effervescent florals.

Wilde Meyer Gallery. Wilde Meyer Gallery will present a spring show featuring various artists including Andrea Peterson, Sarah Kathryn Bean, Brenda Bredvik, and more.
