To me, Gallery Night is an opportunity for local artists to set up their EZ-Ups and display their wares on the streets of Pensacola. Sure, there are established galleries and entertainment complexes that profit, but I have gone twice now and never been into a gallery storefront. The local artists have an eclectic collection of jewelry and art and I enjoy that immensely.
Gallery night is an opportunity for people to come downtown and celebrate the art and listen to the free music that is prevalent wherever you go downtown.
Please correct me if I am wrong, but I don't see Gallery Night as a fatcat elitist gathering for the wealthy that enriches the "In Crowd". OK, my $.02.
