Gallery Georgetown 2015 takes place this Saturday, Oct. 10, from 5-10 pm. It is a community-wide tour of art galleries, exhibition spaces, and studios now in its fourth year. Gallery Georgetown benefits the Georgetown Art Center: participants can support the art center by purchasing the evening’s original 5×7″ artwork or bidding on silent auction artwork.
Participating Gallery Georgetown venues open from 5-8:30 are:
A Premium Blend
Artisans Connect Gallery
Atelier Thomas Anselment
The BiG Shop
Kathleen McElwaine Art
The Gallery at One Love Tattoos
Southwestern University Fine Arts Gallery
Visual Arts Club at Sun City
The Courtyard at Two Rivers Retail
Georgetown Public Library
The Williamson Museum
Each art venue listed above will be open to the public from 5 pm to 8:30 pm to showcase an art exhibition, a performance, or a demonstration. The Gallery Georgetown Shuttle will run between all of the venues. Participants are encouraged to visit as many venues as possible before they close at 8:30.
At 6 pm, the Georgetown Art Center will open, showcasing and selling 5×7″ art pieces priced at $20 and $50, as well as silent auction artwork. After the art tour ends at 8:30 and the other venues close, everyone will gather at the Georgetown Art Center for a reception to announce the winners of the silent auction pieces. Winners will be announced at 9:30 pm.
The last Gallery Georgetown Shuttle run will be at 10 pm when the party concludes.
Thursday, Oct. 8, there will be a Preview Party where participants can view the silent auction artwork before the night of the event. One piece that will be included in the silent auction is “Lost in Your Charms” by Leslie Kell, the artist whose work graces the cover of the Georgetown Arts & Culture Guide for 2015-16 (shown at left).
Join with Georgetown residents, visitors, and artists for an engaging evening of art on Oct. 10, and consider coming to the Preview Party Oct. 8, as well. Gallery Georgetown is a great arts tradition in Georgetown and a wonderful way to spend time with friends.
