March Gallery CrawlFebruary 27, 2018 8:36 pm
With the weather getting warmer and spring quickly approaching, now’s the perfect time to get out and explore the hidden gems around the South End neighborhood: local businesses, craft breweries, delicious restaurants and beautiful art, to name a few. The first Friday of each month, be sure to check out the South End Gallery Crawl where galleries stay open late to host special events and show their latest works.
Each of the six galleries participating this month are within a mile of each other – perfect for a stroll on the Rail Trail or a quick bike ride. This month there are unique exhibitions at 6 different fine art galleries and open studios, showcasing the work of more than 30 local and regional fine artists. More than half of the artists will be there in person on Friday to share more about their creative process and finished works.
