The Erie Art Museum is hosting a gallery walk all around the downtown area of Erie.
On Friday, Sept. 27 from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., the Erie Art Museum is hosting a gallery night that is like no other.
This gallery is placed in multiple locations, such as restaurants and storefronts, in downtown Erie. This event has free admission to all galleries.
The Erie Art Museum is offering a raffle for a $25 gift card to one of the hosting venues for anybody who visits five or more exhibits.
Each exhibit has something specific and very special to it. Most artists are local and some are freshly graduated out of high school. Some exhibits are offering free refreshments and hors d’oeuvres. Meet and greets with the artists are available at multiple exhibits.
Each exhibit is very different from all of the others. One exhibit was done in celebration of Yoga Month, which is September, and it showcases 12 different yoga mats painted by local and national artists to express their feelings about the practice of yoga.
Another exhibit is one that is close to Erie’s heart. Titled Ways of the Water, this exhibit shows paintings by Roy Ahlgren of Erie’s beautiful beaches. The artist also incorporates water themed subjects into his pieces.
There are multiple exhibits, which showcase jewelry and other fine art such as glass blowing and ceramics.
For those interested in cultural diversity and exploration, there are multiple exhibits showcasing other cultures such as Chinese porcelain art and photographs representing Muslim/American culture.
The Erie Art Museum Gallery Night is an experience that is offering not only a new take on different art forms, but also a new take on how to view them by expressing them in new settings. Each exhibit is very unique.
The exhibits are free to visit and are open from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Sept. 27. The map with addresses to all exhibits can be found on the Erie Art Museum website,erieartmuseum.org.
Food and beverages are provided by Whole Foods and the event is sponsored by Erie Insurance. Be sure to support the Erie Art Museum. Starting Oct. 2 is a film series lasting until Dec. 18 and other events can be found on their website.
For those looking to enjoy the art of Erie, or take a brisk walk in downtown, this event is perfect for you.
