Newport Galleries Night 2018 is underway and the season is in high gear at their member galleries, museums and cultural institutions with September Newport Gallery Night on Thursday, September 13th from 4:00 pm until 8:00 pm.

Their popular free Summer Guided Walking Art Tours continue for September Newport Gallery Night. And these short, informational tours will run hourly as follows:  meeting at 4:00 pm at Thames Glass, 5:00 pm at Spring Bull Gallery, 6:00 pm at Art on Spring and 7:00 pm at Arnold Art Gallery.  Tours, which will last about 30-45 minutes, will include information about all of the participating galleries, museums and cultural institutions in each area as well as any other interesting art related stories. The tours will run on Newport Gallery Nights from May through October.

There are exciting new shows at many of the 28 member galleries, museums and cultural institutions including Atelier, Spring Bull Gallery, DeBlois Gallery, Coastal Contemporary Gallery, and Cory Silken Photography.

If you’re hungry after all these exhibitions, step into one of the 7 restaurants that collaborate with Newport Gallery Organization by providing discounts and specials for Newport Gallery Night visitors! Be sure to ask for a restaurant coupon and a parking voucher at any of the galleries. Free parking will be available for the night at the Gateway Visitors Center with a parking voucher and uptown at the Newport Art Museum.
