The Camelback Studio Tour and Art Sale returns for an eighth year from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Nov. 4-6 with artist studio tours scheduled daily in the Sherwood Heights neighborhood in Scottsdale.

The Camelback Studio Tour and Art Sale will kick off the holiday shopping season with special works of art available for sale and ready as gifts, according to a press release stating that 25 local artists, in six different home studios, will be showcased during the art sale, in addition to free, self-guided tours.

Local artists Vickie Morrow and Lynn Gustafson, both residents of the neighborhood where the Camelback Studio Tour and Art Sale will take place, host the tour as part of the South Scottsdale Art Alliance.

“Over the past eight years we have watched our studio tour grow by attracting even more local artists and this year is no exception. The artwork is incredible and the homes are a combination of mid-century design, many with renovations and several have simply stunning views. It makes for a very memorable experience for all of our shoppers,” said Ms. Morrow in a prepared statement.
