The seven participating galleries in the Downtown Gallery Crawl opened their doors August 6th. Strolling from gallery to gallery visitors took in artwork by some of the region’s best-loved artists, while also gaining exposure to a few up-and-comers, as well. The River Gallery located on Antique Alley celebrated their 25th anniversary as Louisiana’s oldest co-op. The 26 artist-members featured a memorabilia wall as well as artwork created just for the show.

Arender Gallery welcomed back Dallas artist Gaeb Cardinale, who graduated from ULM, and The Palace Gallery featured local favorite, Gary Ratcliff.

The Downtown Gallery Crawl is one of the most popular recurring events downtown, and it brings together a diverse cross-section of the Monroe art, business and social communities.
