What’s your calendar look like on Friday, Dec. 5?  How about meeting an artist or two and feasting your eyes on the best of local, regional, and national art?

Gallery Night – a staple of the Erie art scene for more than a decade – has all that, and offers a chance to do some gift shopping, too.  Plus, if you visit at least five of the participating venues, you get a chance to win a gift certificate to any of the galleries.

A bounty of styles and materials should make finding something of pleasure easy, whether it’s painting, sculpture, jewelry, or photography that trips your trigger.

Glass Growers has paintings by Joyce Perowicz and ceramic sculpture by Ron Mazanowski; the works of Frank Kelly, Jr. and Sebastian are at D’Hopkins Denniston; the venerable Kada Gallery is hosting Finger Lakes artist, GC Myers, and Allen Stoneware is presenting a student show.

California ceramic artist Greg Ledd Carlson has his ceramic porcelain shadow boxes and local painter Diane Wenzel Pierce has oils on display at Ralph Miller, and the newly designed Schuster Gallery at Gannon University is presenting the Photographic Arts Society of Northwestern PA. 

Besides the usual refreshments and meet-and-greet opportunities that venues are providing, Urraro Gallery is offering live music by Matty B., along with the annual holiday show by the artists of the Northwest PA Artists’ Association. 

The granddaddy of the event is, of course, The Erie Art Museum, which is showcasing the design work of Erie native Wilbur Henry Adams and works by local artist Jamie Borowitz. It also promises a ClaySpace demonstration and sale and a “quirky winter-themed tour of the galleries” at 7:15 p.m.

Many of these venues offer additional artisan-crafted wares to please your eye and make local shopping easy and fun. 

7 to 10 p.m. // Free Admission // Various locations // More at erieartmuseum.org/events/gallerynight
