Gallery Hop will feature galleries and artist studios in and around Downtown Chattanooga. This year, 20 galleries and studios will participate.
During Gallery Hop, the public can meet local artists, watch demonstrations and learn about the artists’ creative processes at their studios. Galleries will have special exhibitions on display, and refreshments will be provided at most venues. The Hop is also an excellent opportunity to purchase art, whether you are just beginning your collection or you are a long-time patron of the arts.
A map featuring the location of each gallery and studio will be available at all participating galleries. This specially designed guide will enable “hoppers” to create their own route during the event. New this year, the Chattanooga Double Decker Bus will run a special Gallery Hop route that day to encourage hoppers to travel around to as many Hop Stops as possible. This year’s event will also present an opportunity for hoppers to win variety of prizes with Gallery Bingo, from a piece of artwork such as an original glass creation, to art experiences such as tickets to the 4Bridges Arts Festival, and more. Those who wish to be entered to win must visit at least 7 galleries where they will get their entry card (attached to the map) stamped. At the end of the night, entries may be turned in at any Hop location.
