NAAD Art After Hours

I haven’t written a post about Art After Hours since they either changed publicists or got rid of them completely. So now I sadly don’t get a bunch of pretty pictures in my inbox that I can send along to you.

However, I still wanted to tell you all what’s up.

Art After Hours is a basically an art crawl. You walk or drive around to different art galleries, visualize what that awesome painting will look like above your TV, drink some free wine, socialize, and repeat. This happens every first Thursday of every month. It goes from 5-8pm and it’s always a lot of fun. Even I sometimes buy things when I go on art crawls.

So, where does this happen? The easy answer is “all over the city” but it’s mainly focused around the Arcade downtown and in Hillsboro Village. Here’s a list of some of the bigger galleries participating:

  • Cumberland Gallery (Green Hills)
  • Gallery One (Belle Meade Galleria) 
  • LeQuire Gallery (Charlotte Avenue/Green Hills)
  • Local Color (on Broadway) 
  • Midtown Gallery (on Broadway) 
  • Zeitgeist (Hillsboro Village) 

I would mostly just stroll around those areas. After all, art galleries tend to be grouped together. However, if you want a map of all the galleries, here it is!

Have fun, be safe, stay warm.
