ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — Bring your family to the art show! Downtown Roanoke Arts Collective (DRAC) will open its first exhibition, Gallery Grids on Friday, Oct. 7, during Art By Night from 5 p.m. until 9 p.m.

According to DRAC organizers, the event is free, family-friendly, and open to the public. The exhibition includes four galleries located in downtown Roanoke and will run at participating galleries through the month of October.

Organizers say more than 500 artists submitted panels to be included in the exhibition, which will be grouped according to a theme and displayed as a large grid. These are the following themes:

  • Climate Change
  • Portals
  • The Four Elements
  • Postcards

Artists of all ages and experiences have submitted panels. And the grids will be available for purchase or pursuit.

The following are Roanoke galleries that will be participating

  • Alexander/Health Contemporary
  • Left of Center Art Space
  • Market Gallery
  • LinDor Arts

“We are so excited about our first joint exhibition. The Gallery Grids has been open to artists of all levels, abilities, and interests,” said Annie Schultz, artist, and Downtown Roanoke Arts Collective spokesperson. “With more than 500 panels distributed by the four participating galleries, we anticipate that this event will bring hundreds of new visitors to Downtown Roanoke to see this unique exhibit,” 

DRAC is a cooperative effort of the city’s art galleries. This is its first effort, funded by the Roanoke Arts Commission as part of the Arts Connect initiative.

“The city’s galleries are the heart of Roanoke’s local art market,” said Doug Jackson, Roanoke Arts Commission Arts and Cultural Coordinator. “When the galleries are collectively showing a diverse range of arts and crafts, residents and visitors alike get the full sense of our community, and when those galleries are working collaboratively, the message spreads faster, art’s easier to find and we all flourish together.” 

Downtown Roanoke Arts Collective member galleries can be identified by a colorful striped flag in front of their doors, made possible by Downtwon Roanoke Inc.
