June Gallery Crawl

May 30, 2018 7:14 am
Travel, dreams, personal experiences – every artist has their own story about what inspires their work, many of which you can hear firsthand at this month’s First Friday Gallery Crawl. Artists who come from across the world and down the street will be showing their work at galleries around South End and sharing their passion for their work through conversations, a chance to get your hands dirty and try out one of their mediums, and even an opportunity to add your voice to one of their exhibitions.
