Erie comes alive on Gallery Night, as local arts organizations open their doors after hours to show off the city’s vibrant arts scene.

On July 8, the Erie Art Museum will hold its third Gallery Night of 2016. The event features local artwork at the museum and several other local venues. Those who hope to attend should start mapping out their road trip now, as there are eight different locations to visit in only three hours.

Participating galleries will feature everything from Lena Logvina’s new jewelry collection displayed at Artlore Studio and Maggie Flately’s beautiful landscape paintings at Lighthouse Jewelers, to John Ballard’s unique, upcycled driftwood projects at Glass Growers Gallery and E. Michael Camp’s masterful pastel and oil paintings at the Bayfront Gallery.

The Erie Art Museum will present Jose Picayo Polaroids (1986-2015) for this occasion and offer a meet and greet with Picayo. The 93rd Annual Spring Show, Nocturnal Emissions by Alison Stinely, and Dark Garden, an installation by Linda Huey, will also be on display.

Visitors can travel around the city to experience it all for free, while sharing the fun on social media with the hashtag, #vibranterie.

A complete list of locations and their addresses is available on Erie Art Museum’s website.

The next Gallery Night is scheduled for Friday, September 23. Any organization can join in, but all venues should display original artwork and are encouraged to offer live entertainment, artist meet-and-greets, and demonstrations. If your business or studio would like to participate, contact the Erie Art Museum by Friday, August 5. – Tracy Geibel
