Tonight marks the 5th anniversary of Downtown’s Art Walk, where most of the Historic Core’s galleries and museums open their doors to the public for free. Tonight’s Art Walk features a few special treats including: Free guided walking tours departing from Clifton's Cafeteria (reservations required), a conversational salon entitled "Mysteries of Magic Revealed" also at Clifton's Cafeteria (5:30 pm). Live entertainment from the Ukulady, Crimebo the Clown and pals on the free Hippodrome shuttle circling Spring and Main Streets from 6-10 pm. The Bark Avenue Foundation will also have a station at 545 S. Main St. for those art walkers who might be interested in adopting a puppy or kitten, too.
For those who don’t feel like traveling downtown to see some art, the Carmichael Gallery of Contemporary Art has two shows opening tonight featuring UK artists. Painter Dan Baldwin will be showing new canvases, ceramics and a limited edition print, and the collective The London Police celebrate its 10-year anniversary with an exhibition of all new Hollywood-themed paintings, video and photography. Both shows run through Oct. 1.
