Join us this Friday, Feb 1st for our monthly First Friday Gallery Crawl and Food Truck Friday. Below you will find a variety of details happening this Friday but please know that restaurants and other shops are open during Gallery Crawl and you can pick up a South End Guide at the Food Truck Friday lot to do your own exploring. Enjoy!
This Gallery Crawl we are hosting the first ever Free Gallery Crawl Walking Tour. You do not have to be part of this tour to enjoy the Gallery Crawl but we put together this free experience to help give you some behind the scenes info on the galleries, shops and South End as well as give you a chance to hit up the popular Food Truck Friday. We currently have 85 people registered for the Gallery Crawl Walking Tour so we are not taking any more reservations but we do have a waiting list so please sign up for the waiting list.
Food Truck Friday
Food Truck Friday has become one of South End’s most popular events. Hosted every Friday for the past year (closed only one Friday due to freezing rain/sleet) on the corner of Camden and Park Ave, Food Truck Friday has become a culinary adventure. Trucks participating this Friday are as follows: Herban Legand, The Tin Kitchen, Turkey and…, Autoburger & Fry Guys, Sticks & Cones, Napolitanos and Southern Cake Queen. As a reminder, outside beer and wine is not permitted; however, you can purchase beverages from Common Market or Phat Burrito, bring unopened to the lot and consume with your Food Truck dinner. Some tables are provided but feel free to bring your own chairs or blankets. We Recycle!
Gallery Exhibitions for February
Lark and Key Gallery – After five years, two locations, one shaky economy, not sure how many times we’ve been mistaken for a locksmith, a multitude of matches made with artwork and homes, and a few headaches – coupled with numerous moments of self doubt, we’re still here thanks to you!
We ring in the new year with FLOURISH – a mixed media exhibition that celebrates our love of nature. Gallery artists Dawn Rentz and Amy Sanders will be featured along with guests artists Mirabel Angel, Marcy Baker, Julie Guyot, Kristin Kieffer and Jen Swearington (Jennythreads). Each one draws upon the natural world as well as textiles for inspiration. Expect influences such as vast landscapes, botanical imagery, quilting and art nouveau illustrations.
