Gallery Night Offers a Wide Spectrum for the Artistically Curious by Gregory Greenleaf-Knepp

Friday, Sept. 23

With art for the mind and food for the tummy, they should rename Gallery Night, Palate Night.

“Palate,” as defined by Dictionary.com, refers to both “intellectual or aesthetic taste; mental appreciation” as well as the “sense of taste.”

As 13 separate galleries and one museum welcome visitors after usual business hours, entertainment and foodstuffs will likewise be on hand in many venues.

And as 13 separate galleries and one museum welcome visitors after usual business hours in order to present their establishments’ current objets d’art, entertainment and foodstuffs will likewise be on hand in many venues.

Gallery Night also offers several meet-and-greets with the featured artists, such as mosaic artist Lena Logvina at Artlore Studio, “realistic” painter Herm Weber at D’Hopkins Denniston Gallery, and Dietrich Wegner, who will discuss his solo exhibit, I Think I Found It Upside Down, at Erie Art Museum.

According to Erie Art Museum’s website, other highlights include:

 – Robo Tins, a conglomeration of collectible cast-offs, vintage tins, and other found objects lovingly constructed into unique sculptures by Eric Schwartz at Artlore Studio;

 – “Vivid” paintings and drawings of ethereal female forms in stunning settings by Mercedes “Mercy” Maclay at Radius CoWork Gallery;

 – Nautical works from tattoo artist Cory Thompson at Beachcomber Boutique;

 – Photographer Vance Lupher and Sovereign Ballet dancers collaborating to produce an aesthetically striking exhibit of dancers “stopped” in time at Sovereign Ballet.

The three-hour shindig is free and open to the public. – Gregory Greenleaf-Knepp
