ALEXANDRIA, VA–The Old Town Art Walk, a self-guided tour to Old Town’s many art shops, studios, galleries, and murals is an Alexandria tradition on the third Thursday of each month. This month, the funky King Street art gallery Galactic Panther will participate in the Old Town Art Walk, Thursday May 19, from 5:00-8:00pm. The event is free and open to the public.
A feature of the event will be their Panther Party Art workshop series, free for visitors and to include an artist assisted charcoal drawing workshop catered by ESP Tea & Coffee.
The Art Walk celebration will also serve as an exhibit closing reception for two exhibits including JUXTAPOSE (a contemporary art exhibit featuring regional, national, & international visionary artists), and HOP-UP (an exhibit by artist Ben Freedman).
With over 50 local, national, and international contemporary visionary artists, and a few classics like Picasso & Holty currently represented in the gallery, this is a great opportunity to stop in and pick up a fun gift and a unique work of art, have a snack, and even create a work of art yourself.
The Art Walk will continue on the third Thursday of the month through October. Additional upcoming events at Galactic Panther are as follows:
Panther Party Art Workshops, Thursdays and Sundays
Conscious Gatherings and Open Mic, every other Sunday immediately following Panther Parties, 6:30pm
