This year brings many exciting changes to the Erie Art Museum, including updates to our Gallery Night programming. In order to accommodate the increase in participants and visitor demand, we have adjusted our participant fee. The registration process is now completely online, and participants will only be included in the program and considered an official participant when payment has been received. If you would like to become a member of the Museum to get the discounted participation fee, please go to our membership page and choose what membership level you would like.

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.)
