Double-decker buses offer Gallery Hoppers transport
Fall out of your staid, regular routine. The air is crisp and Chattanooga is filled with opportunities for new adventures...such as AVA’s Ninth Annual Gallery Hop, which fills the streets with wandering art-lovers again this Saturday, Sept. 12 from 2-8 p.m.
Once a year, the Association for Visual Arts puts together a “self-explanatory event”; interested individuals spend their Saturday afternoon hopping from art gallery to art gallery. It’s that simple.
Special transportation will be offered this year as six double-decker buses will take you to your art destinations…and you simply hop off or hop on.
This free event is a way to experience something new and fun that also gets those creative minds reeling. To start the day, just choose one of the 20 galleries and get hopping. Maps with bingo cards will be provided at each location. Collect stamps from the galleries along the way and hope to win art prizes, event tickets and other stuff.
Galleries will feature artist demonstrations alongside regional, local and national artwork. Gallery hoppers are, of course, encouraged to buy any pieces they find and love.
