Friday, July 28
Erie Art Museum's upcoming Gallery Night celebrates summer with art, live entertainment and demonstrations spread across 15 uniquely Erie venues.
At the museum, people can view Pairing Similarities, a display of cast bronze and aluminum sculptures by D.W. Martin, and admire Ancient Ink, a collection of photographs by Mark Perrott. His work documents the "highly-decorated tribe of tattooed older Americans."
Perrott will speak at 7:30 p.m. as part of an Artist Talk, and a $5 Romolo's Chocolate art pairing tour will follow at 8:15 p.m. A glass bead demonstration will be offered throughout the evening until 9 p.m.
Meanwhile, the Presque Isle Artists Association will display summer-themed art at the Key Bank Community Room, 801 State St. The Once Upon a Summer exhibit features its members' artwork in the form of many mediums. Artists will attend to mingle with guests.
Other venues are also featuring seasonal art. At the Beachcomber Gallery, 3445 West 12th St, people can see a new Essential Beach Jewelry by Denise Walker. The Bayfront Gallery at 17 East Dobbins Landing will display watercolor Presque Isle scenes by Wilda Sundberg and vintage pieces by her late husband.
A complete list of locations, their exhibits and addresses is available on Erie Art Museum's website. Other gallery nights will be held Sept. 22 and Dec. 1. Any local organization, business or studio is welcome to participate, but they must remain open and display original artwork for the entire duration of the show.
