Thank you to everyone who participated in Gallery Nights 2018. We look forward to more fun in 2019.

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 gallery spaces.

Any type of organization, business, or studio can participate, but all venues must show original artwork in their space on Gallery Night and be open from 7:00 – 10:00 p.m.* Participating venues are encouraged to host programming that complements their featured artwork such as talks, artist meet & greets, demonstrations, or live entertainment as well as complimentary refreshments for visitors. Each venue pays the Erie Art Museum a participation fee. This fee covers the expense of printing and mailing a flier to over 1200 individuals and organizations. In addition, participating venues are listed on the Museum’s website and in all press releases sent to all regional print and TV media. If you are an individual artist who would like to show your work at a Gallery Night you need to find a venue who will collaborate with you. (For information about showing your work at the Erie Art Museum go here.)

For information on Gallery Night, please email Lucia or call ph 814.459.5477.

*July 26 Gallery Night will begin earlier, 5 p.m. -9 p.m.
