Now that our class has gotten it’s feet wet in downtown Roanoke, I want to share some of the other awesome things it has to offer! A special, fun thing is called Art by Night. I have never personally been able to go, but it’s a great opportunity. The first Friday of each month, a select number of art galleries are open late. It’s a free event (parking is free after 5), where you can experience the galleries at your own leisure and choice, as opposed to by chance or appointment. You also get the unique opportunity to talk with the artists. To check out more, here is the website: Art by Night.
Roanoke is full of unique galleries with talented and emerging artists, and the concentration of galleries downtown is perfect to visit many in one day. Even if you don’t get to go to Art by Night, still try to check out some of the galleries listed!
