Downtown Gallery Crawl – December
Fair skies and warmer temperatures greeted the final Downtown Gallery Crawl of the year, as dozens of artists displayed hundreds of works along Art Alley in historic Downtown Monroe Dec. 4. Visitors strolled among the seven downtown galleries while also enjoying complimentary wine and beer, food, and music.
Regular crowd favorites such as Emily Caldwell and Ricky Sikes joined other popular local talent, Jason Byron Nelson and Leah Reitzell. And, marking her return to the Monroe art scene, hometown girl turned New Orleans artist, Anna Schriefer, presented several paintings featuring views around her Marigny home. Schriefer returned to the Downtown Gallery Crawl after an absence of more than two years.
The Downtown Gallery Crawl takes place the first Thursday of every other month along Art Alley in Monroe and at several galleries along Desiard Street near Restaurant Cotton. For more information, find Downtown Gallery Crawl on Facebook.
