Gallery Night Features Gallery Talks, Live Music and Halloween Fun

Erie, PA, October 03, 2008 --( Another edition of Gallery Night, an evening of free gallery events, is slated for Friday, Oct. 10 from 7-10 p.m.

Accents By The Bay, Allen Stoneware Gallery, Bayfront Gallery, Gannon University Schuster Gallery, Geary’s Studio 7 Gallery, Glass Growers Gallery, Kada Gallery, Kuhn’s Framing and Gift Gallery, Ralph Miller Jewelers & Gallery, Urraro Gallery and the galleries at the Erie Art Museum will host Gallery Night.

“In August, we added a member of the Museum’s education staff to the trolley throughout the night, announcing departures and assisting gallery-goers with any questions that they may have,” said Tammy Roche, director of marketing and development at the Erie Art Museum. “We will continue to offer this to make using the trolley easier.”

EMTA’s Bayliner will be providing free 30-minute shuttle transportation from 7 to 10:30 p.m. Trolley maps and schedules are available at each gallery or by calling the Erie Art Museum at 814-459-5477.
