2013 Art Gallery Tours: Saturday, September 28


September 19, 2013

MONCTON – The City of Moncton is pleased to offer its annual Art Gallery Tours on Saturday, September 28, from noon to 5 p.m. Everyone will get a chance to immerse themselves into the local artistic community, free of charge, during this annual self-guided, animated and interactive tour.

The 2013 Gallery Tour is presented in celebration of Culture Days, a collaborative pan-Canadian volunteer movement to raise the awareness, accessibility, participation and engagement of all Canadians in the arts and cultural life of their communities.

“This is a chance for our residents to get a true glimpse into what our cultural community is all about,” said Paulette Thériault, Moncton City Councilor and member of Moncton’s Cultural Board.  “We invite everyone to see and experience all the wonderful visual artists and galleries right here in our city.”

During the tour, local galleries will greet and welcome the public into their spaces. The program will include interpretations of galleries’ current exhibits, ‘meet the artist’ events, silent auctions, live art demonstrations, a chance for the public to try a painting technique, and more.
