Gallery Promenade, the Arts Council of SWLA’s annual gallery and museum showcase, returns this Friday, September 26th, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., and this year, dozens of galleries and art spaces from across Lake Charles and Sulphur will open their doors for an extensive and cooperative art walk that features the area’s current exhibits and local artists.
New to this year’s event is Venue Bingo which includes prizes for those who complete their bingo card the night of Gallery Promenade. Event maps will include bingo cards that list specific venues, and those who get their bingo card stamped at the listed venues will be entered into a chance to win gifts and meals donated by Art Associates Gallery, Pint House Pizza, and Stellar Beans. Maps will be available the day of Gallery Promenade at all participating venues, and maps will show which venues will be drop off points to submit the bingo cards.
Gallery Promenade draws residents and visitors into galleries and museums to help boost the public’s awareness of the businesses that work daily to promote the local art scene. Gallery Promenade is a celebratory event that encourages the public to travel from gallery to gallery for a comprehensive and interactive experience of the diversity of Southwest Louisiana’s art and the many artists and art spaces that are further developing the region’s cultural economy.
Gallery Promenade is presented annually by the Arts Council of SWLA and is sponsored by Union Pacific Foundation, FOX 29/the CW, and ASI Office Systems. For details, visit www.artscouncilswla.org or call the Arts Council at 337-439-2787.
