Friday, May 19
Here's a challenge: Can you visit more than 15 Erie art locations in three hours?
That's what's in store for those who attend the Erie Art Museum's next Gallery Night. The event features artwork at the museum and other local venues. Some locations also promise live entertainment, artist meet-and-greets, and demonstrations.
At the Erie Art Museum, visitors can view the 94th Annual Spring Show, Earth Stories (environmentally themed quilts), Tin Plated Dreams: sculptures by William Brady, Jr. (an exhibit of tin mobiles), and more. Poetic tours led by Chuck Joy, author of Theme of Line, will be offered at 7:30 and 8:30 p.m.
Meanwhile, the Renaissance Centre will house the display of The Visual Snack Shop by Higherglyphics, which includes mini-sculptures, prints, and other work by Todd Scalise. Two other exhibits, Erie Ink and Desvelado, will also be featured there.
Voodoo Brewery plans to show off Pennsyltucky Wabi-Sabi by "Hollerin' Jer" McGinty, which is a "collection of barn-built bar hopper motorcycles."
There's something for everyone. At Erie ClaySpace Studio, guests take their turns throwing pots on the wheel, and at Glass Growers Gallery, they can meet Joanne Loew, the artist behind the exhibit "Lucid Dreams," a collection of oil and acrylic paintings.
A complete list of locations and their exhibits is available on Erie Art Museum's website. – Tracy Geibel
