Now in its 11th year, Gallery Nights are a vital expression of Erie’s lively art scene. Organized by the Erie Art Museum, each Gallery Night offers a different constellation of partners, from well-established commercial galleries to pop-up exhibits, artist’s studios, and boutiques. With the Museum as the anchor, each location brings its own vibe and special fare to these festive Friday evenings.
The Museum opens two new exhibits; the 95th Annual Spring Show, a juried exhibition of works from the region and Vintage Neon, photographs of mid-century signage by Pittsburgh artist and photographer Chuck Biddle. Also on view is Faces and Places, a survey of six decades of paintings by retired Edinboro professor James McMurray, Divine Instinct, Gary Spinosa’s sculptures inspired by ancient art and iconography. Gallery talk by Chuck Biddle at 7:15. Dianne Borsenik, Kim Noyes, Barbara Crone, Chuck Joy and Cee Williams recite original poems responding to works in the Spring Show at 8:00 and 9:00 p.m. Click here to see participating galleries
