30 galleries across Milwaukee to participate in Gallery Night MKE this weekend
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Milwaukee has a bustling art scene, and the Third Ward is at the center of it.
From East Town to Walker's Point, there are dozens of galleries.
This weekend you can dive right into the city's art culture during Gallery Night MKE.
"For gallery night we not only bring in national artists, but we showcase hundreds of local artists," said organizer Jordan Dechambre.
You can support and meet artists, get involved in community art and even hear stories about the inspiration behind some pieces.
Ava Hager will show off her sculptures at Arts @ Large made of bent wood and used tea bags. It all started as a way to express herself while dealing with stomach issues.
"This led to my tea drinking practice because it was something that made my stomach feel good," said Hager.
And she'll be giving out tea on Friday night starting at 5 p.m. at Arts @ Large.
"I'll be having a bunch of tea selections for people to drink in the space and enjoy the performance that Cedar will be having, then they'll be able to hang their tea bags to dry towards my next artwork," said Hager.
Vino Wine Bar in the Third ward will offer wine glass painting, live music and acrylic painter, Michael Weiss, will be there with prints and other merchandise.
