The Association for Visual Arts has announced the seventh annual Gallery Hop will take place on Saturday, Sept. 7, from 2-8 p.m.
Gallery Hop 2013 will feature galleries and artist studios throughout Chattanooga. This year, more than 20 galleries and studios will participate.
During Gallery Hop 2013, the public can meet local artists, watch demonstrations and learn about the artists’ creative processes at their studios. Galleries will have special exhibitions on display, and refreshments will be provided at most venues. The event is free of charge.
A map featuring the location of each gallery and studio will be available at all participating galleries. This specially designed guide will enable “hoppers” to create their own route during the event and can also be used throughout the year for visitors interested in touring the local arts scene. This year’s event will also present an opportunity for hoppers to win an “Instant Art Collection” featuring artworks from the participating galleries. Those who wish to be entered to win must visit at least 10 galleries where they will get their entry card stamped. At the end of the night, entries may be turned in at any Hop location.
