Downtown Art Brunch: A Taste of Erie Art
Galleries collaborate over brunch to bring people to the Downtown Erie art scene
Saturday, Jan. 14
What pairs well with appetizers, snacks, and drinks such as coffee or mimosas? How about beautiful local art and music? The Downtown Art Brunch event is a collaboration between four downtown galleries including 1020 Collective, City Gallery, D' Hopkins Denniston Gallery, and Glass Growers Gallery.
The galleries will serve up brunch refreshments and live music while you peruse the art exhibits. All galleries are within walking distance of each other, so one has the chance to experience the variety of food and art that each gallery has to offer. The artwork on display at each of the galleries is largely for sale, so you might just find that one piece that speaks to you and give it a forever home. However, if you simply come for the hors d'oeuvres and ambiance, that's okay too.
Stephen Trohoske, co-owner of City Gallery said that "although each gallery has something different to offer, the collaboration is a great way to bring the community together to appreciate art and the artists in all the galleries. We want the community to come to appreciate art, the artists, and to help embrace the arts into their lives."
The galleries involved are planning to hold the brunch event on the second Saturday of each month so if you miss one, there will be plenty of chances to get your local art fix.
11 a.m. to 2 p.m. // City Gallery at 1503 State St., Glass Growers Gallery at 10 E. 5th St., D' Hopkins Denniston Gallery at 5 W. 10th St., and 1020 Collective at 1020 Holland St. // facebook.com/citygalleryerie/events
