Address: Ryan Street, Lake Charles, LA 70601
Gallery Promenade, the Arts and Humanities Council of Southwest Louisiana’s annual gallery and museum showcase, returns on Friday, September 28th, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., and this year, over eighteen venues from downtown Lake Charles to McNeese campus and Sulphur to Moss Bluff will open their doors for an extensive and cooperative art walk that features the area’s current exhibits and local artists.
While its sister event, the Spring Art Walk, focuses on the individual artist, Gallery Promenade draws residents and visitors into galleries and museums to help boost the public’s awareness of the businesses that work daily to promote the local art scene. These art spaces work day in and day out to foster the progression of artistic expression in Southwest Louisiana, and to promote the beauty and originality of our local artists, thereby stimulating growth in our community’s cultural economy and the sustainability of this fruitful sector of commerce. Gallery Promenade is a celebratory event that encourages the public to travel from gallery to gallery for a comprehensive and interactive experience of the diversity of Southwest Louisiana’s art and the many artists and art spaces that are further developing the region’s cultural economy.
Participating venues include: The Children’s Museum, Art Associates Gallery, The Harrington Gallery, 1911 Historic City Hall, The Black Heritage Gallery, Atomic Heart Tattoo, Frame House Gallery, Imperial Calcasieu Museum, Abercrombie Gallery, Studio 347, Alexander Art Studio, Art Du-Lac, Stellar Beans, Yayi Gallery, 505 Bazaar, Artisans Gallery, Henning Cultural Center, The Art Shop, and the Historic Calcasieu Marine Bank.
