Annual Gallery Walk
The art world will descend upon Downtown Petoskey for its thirteenth annual Gallery Walk. This evening of art and entertainment has definitely become a community tradition.
Participating art galleries will greet guests on the third Thursday in June, June 20, 2013, from 6:00 to 9 pm in an open-house format and offer delights for your eyes, ears, and taste buds. Many of the galleries will have the artists present to introduce their works.
As a wonderful and exciting wrap up to the evening, art lovers will get a chance to win some fabulous art donated by the participating galleries. Each gallery that you visit during the evening earns you another dot on your walking map, and each dot earns you a ticket to go in the drawing. Additional tickets are earned with each purchase that you make. The tickets will then be drawn at the Afterglow Party in the Rose Garden at Stafford's Perry Hotel. Thousands of dollars worth of art is given away each year.
Walking maps are free and will be available at the Petoskey Downtown Office, the Petoskey Regional Chamber of Commerce, and the participating galleries. So, get a babysitter, grab your friends, and stroll around Downtown Petoskey and soak up the cultured atmosphere.
Gallery Walk is sponsored by the galleries of Downtown Petoskey with the support of Fifth Third Bank, the Downtown Management Board and Crooked Tree Arts Center. Participating galleries are: Arlington Jewelers, Art Cats Gallery, Crooked Tree Arts Center, Luciano's, Mitchell Street Frameworks & Gallery, Northern Michigan Artists Market, Shadetree Stained Glass Studio, Stafford's Gallery of Art and History, Ward & Eis Gallery, and WARD Gallery at Ciao Bella!
