April Gallery Walk in Photos

Categories: Arts & Culture

It's too difficult to describe what's on exhibit at the galleries in a blog; the words just don't adequately express how beautiful and interesting the artwork is or how cool the gallery spaces are. So instead, I took a little stroll through the galleries and snapped a few photos, to give you a glimpse of what's on the walls (or stands, or floor). Hopefully you'll also get an idea of what the spaces are like (traditional and non-traditional, like a hair salon), because actually experiencing the art in a gallery is infinitely better than just seeing it online. So walk the Walk, it won't disappoint.
