What’s New?

Gallery Night

April 26 from 7 – 10 pm
Gallery Night is like a pub crawl, but with art. Shop, eat, listen to music and spend time with friends and family visiting as many local galleries as you can. There’s no better way to get a feel for Erie’s art and culture scene.

S.M.S (Sh*t Must Stop) Portfolio

May 10 from 6 – 7 pm
Sick of galleries and museums, artists like Marcel Duchamp, Man Ray, Roy Lichtenstein and John Cage started mailing art directly to peoples’ homes. Rarely seen and very cool.

May 24 from 6 – 7 pm
Left brained or right brained? It’s far from an either/or. Art’s a science and science an art. Join us as we explore their tangled past.  Register Online Now
