Ever wanted to know how to start your own art collection? Intimidated by the gallery scene? Worry not - Exchange District galleries and artists are here to help.
On Friday July 6, the Free Press and the Exchange District First Fridays present "Art Talk/Art Walk," the first in a series of lectures and walking tours of Exchange District galleries and artist studios. The first AT/AW event is entitled, rather appropriately, "how to start your own art collection."
Dinner and lecture starts at 6 p.m. at the Free Press News Café, 237 McDermot Avenue. At 7:30 p.m., guests will be provided with a map identifying the diverse array of art galleries in the Exchange District, along with the location of several studios where they can meet artists in their environment.
Tickets for Art Talk/Art Walk cost $20, which covers dinner, taxes and gratuities. Call 697-7069 to reserve your tickets. Or for more information, contact the News Café at 943-0682.
