Gallery Walk Metuchen 2014 is an arts event sponsored by the Metuchen Arts Council and will showcase works in six exhibition spaces. It will take place from noon to 5pm on Sunday, October 5. Festivities will also include food from local partner restaurants as well as music provided by The Happy Campers, who will perform outside Metuchen’s Gallery at the Rotunda at Borough Hall.
“This is our second annual Gallery Walk Metuchen,” says Amy Brooks, Chairperson of Gallery Walk Metuchen. “We were amazed at how many visitors attended last year’s Walk and how enthusiastically they embraced the event. It really seems to already have established itself in the culture of our town.”
The following galleries will be participating in Gallery Walk Metuchen:
