Participating in Gallery Night

Gallery Night offers promotional exposure for participating venues, reaching a large and diverse audience, and fosters excitement for the local arts scene while highlighting its many unique gallery spaces.

Any type of organization, business, or studio can participate, but all venues must show original artwork in their space on Gallery Night. Participating venues are responsible for coordinating programming and featured artwork for their unique event. Participating venues often plan talks, artist meet & greets, demonstrations, or other live entertainment to complement the visual art on display, as well as complimentary refreshments for visitors. Individual artists who need a venue and area businesses interested in participating, but without art, are encouraged to collaborate.

For information on Gallery Night, please contact Carissa by email or call 814-459-5477.
