Texarkana ‘Gallery Hop’ is Saturday
The Texarkana Regional Arts & Humanities Council presents the Texarkana "Gallery Hop" Saturday.
The Gallery Hop is a self-guided tour of the visual arts in Texarkana, USA. Patrons begin at any location and visit as many or as few participating venues as they would like. Each site presents exciting new art for each Hop and admission is always free.
While the official Hop hours are 12 p.m. - 4 p.m., closing times may vary and many of the supporting art venues will remain open through out the day.
The Gallery Hop is about promoting local art venues and artists in the Texarkana community. There are eight wonderful businesses and organizations to visit during this Hop. Visitors will celebrate art throughout the afternoon with new gallery exhibitions, special events, refreshments, and art demonstrations throughout Texarkana. Visitors begin at any location and visit as many or as few participating venues as they would like. Admission is always free.
“The Texarkana Gallery Hop is a great opportunity to showcase talented artists in Texarkana, help local galleries and businesses to work together, and to make the art experience fun for everyone," said Amy Donohoe, Director of Visual Arts and Community Programs.
“I think it’s an asset to the community to visit their local galleries. Support your local art scene by getting out and seeing art," she added.
