Scottsdale artist Jeff Zischke to open first art gallery

The Guggenheim Museum in New York and Bilbao, the Salone Del Mobile in Milan, Italy and the San Francisco Design Center, in San Francisco, Calif. are just a smattering of the prestigious venues that have featured artist Jeff Zischke’s creations.

For more than 40 years, Mr. Zischke has designed awe-inspiring temporary and permanent works of art for private and public spaces; the

cities of Scottsdale, Mesa, and Tempe have all benefited from his magnificent public artworks, according to a press release.

At 6 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 23, Mr. Zischke shares his talents with art lovers from around the world by celebrating the Grand Opening of his first showroom and gallery, Art|Object, located at 100 E. Easy Street in Carefree. Mr. Zischke will showcase paintings, 3-D printed sculptures, cast bronze, carved marble, lighting, furniture and fabricated steel sculptures for guests and collectors while enjoying cocktails and hors d’oeuvres during this exciting evening of celebration, the release stated.

“Renaissance man” is an appropriate descriptor for Mr. Zischke, according to the release. A creator of unparalleled artwork and sculpture, he is also a voracious gardener (he maintains a bonsai tree filled Japanese garden at his home in Scottsdale  – an unheard of feat), furniture and light designer (W Hotel of Scottsdale) and an international traveler with an artist’s eye seeking inspiration the world over.

The opening of his first showroom/gallery heralds the realization of a life-long dream.

“I have always desired a space where my eclectic passions could be featured and, hopefully, enjoyed by others all under one roof,” stated Mr. Zischke, in the release. “Yes, I will have paintings and sculptures for purchase but I am also excited to bring my love of gardening into the gallery with guests and patrons able to buy Kokedama moss balls that I learned to make while in Kobe, Japan. Art, of any kind; living, breathing, steel or stone should appeal to all of the senses and this is what I hope to convey at Art|Object.”

A portion of the proceeds of any work sold during the Grand Opening celebration will benefit Free Arts for Abused Children of Arizona, a non-profit charity whose mission is to heal abused and homeless children through artistic expression, the release stated.
