Those who take part in the sixth annual Gallery Crawl Oct. 11 will pay visits to the Dacotah Prairie Museum, Sixth Avenue Gallery and the ARCC Gallery at the Aberdeen Recreation and Cultural Center.
The crawl “will be an evening to try new places, see exciting art, listen to live music and, of course, have some food,” says the Aberdeen Area Arts Council. Each stop will include a gallery talk, which will include information about the works on display.
Tickets go on sale Monday at the Alexander Mitchell Public Library, 519 S. Kline St.
The tour will start at the ARCC at 5:30 pm. Attendees will load the bus for the Dacotah Prairie Museum, the tour’s first stop. At the museum, gallery crawlers will enjoy South Dakotan Harvey Dunn's work and live music by Sue Gates. At 6:15 p.m., the group will board the bus and head to the Sixth Avenue Gallery, which has works from Northern State University graduate Becky Grismer of Spearfish and local artists Jacob Bosmoe, Nick Fischer, Nicole Fischer and Matt Schaefer. The bus will depart the Gallery at 7 p.m. The final stop of the crawl will be at the ARCC Gallery, where featured artist James E. Johnson will have “The Line: Horizontal & Vertical Landscapes” on display.
Something different will be available at each gallery as far as food — appetizer, light entrée and dessert. Live music will be at each stop with a performance by Willson and McKee concluding the evening at the ARCC.
There is an $8 charge per person for the gallery tour. You are encouraged to take the bus; however, you are welcome to drive yourself to each of the galleries. The cost is the same no matter how you travel to each gallery. Forty-five tickets for riding the bus and 15 tickets for those who wish to drive themselves will be sold.
