Gallery Night November 2016: Tour with Local Celebs!


How often is it that viewing art, meeting interesting people while learning and having fun all come together for FREE? I’m talking about Providence Gallery Night. It happens the third Thursday of each month (March – November), where you can promenade the streets of Providence and its surrounding neighborhoods and encounter art, artists and history while having a fabulous time!

With this month to end the 20th year in season, the lineup is quite impressive. It all happens Thursday, November 17 from 5 – 9pm. If you are looking for a starting point, meet at The Regency Plaza located at One Regency Plaza in the heart of downtown Providence. With fixed timed celebrity tours, the scene at the lobby will be buzzing. It’s always exciting when the local galleries (including new pop-ups) and museums open their doors (for FREE) and expose the latest exhibits, wares and artists ready to dish out the common passion of art.


Here’s a lineup for the evening:


Bannister Gallery, Half Full and RISD ISB Gallery
