Art, live music and food at annual gallery tour

Farm Forum

On Oct. 15, for the eighth year in a row, local art and music patrons will take a tour of local art galleries in one night.

Galleries visited will be the Dacotah Prairie Museum, Northern State University’s Lincoln Gallery and the Aberdeen Recreation and Cultural Center Gallery. According to organizers, the Gallery Tour “features exciting art, live music and, of course, food.”

Tickets for the Gallery Tour are on sale now at the Alexander Mitchell Public Library, 519 S. Kline St. The cost of the tour is $8.

The gallery crawlers are asked to meet at the ARCC, 223 Third Ave. S.E., and load the shuttle bus on the north side of the building by 5:30 p.m. Parking is available on the north side of the building.

Two galleries will be featured at the first stop, the Dacotah Prairie Museum. The Lamont Gallery will feature a local photographer, Michaela Glugla, whose exhibit will be “The Road Less Traveled.” The Helen Bergh Education Room exhibit will be “Flights into History,” highlighting local airplane history. That exhibit is being held in conjunction with an upcoming symphony at Northern State University.

At 6:15 p.m., the group will head to Lincoln Gallery, where the sculptural installation work of Josh Johnson of Lincoln, Neb., will be featured.

The third stop for the evening will be at the ARCC, where more than 100 paintings by the Prairie Artists Workshop will be featured. The Prairie Artists Workshop is a group of four painters — Mary Cross, Judith Oliver, Betty Sheldon and Dan Sheldon.

“Something different will be available at each gallery as far as food — appetizer, light entrée and dessert,” said a news release. Live music will highlight each stop.

“The gallery crawl is an exciting evening to venture to art galleries in Aberdeen. Invite your friends and enjoy an evening with friends, fine art, fine food and fine music.”

A limited number of tickets is available for the evening.

Sponsors for the evening include NSU Galleries, Dacotah Prairie Museum, the Alexander Mitchell Public Library, the ARCC and the Aberdeen Area Arts Council.
