Gallery Night Guide


Join Bob on April 18th as he returns as one of the guides for the Gallery night Providence 6:20 Contemporary Tour visiting: AIAriChabot GalleryGallery ZRoyal GalleryURI. 



Gallery Night Providence is a free, fun-filled introduction to Providence’s exciting art scene! On the third Thursday of the month, from March through November, over two dozen of the city’s hot “art spots” open their doors – inviting you to a visual arts party.

Theme-dedicated bus tours leave at 5:20, 5:40, 6:00, 6:20 (this is Bob’s tour), 6:40, and 7:00 pm. Tours stop at approximately 4 galleries each and run about 2 hours. Parking is free at our central location at One Regency Plaza located at the end of Greene (2nd parking lot on the left) in back of the Providence Public Library. You can also pick up the bus from any one of your favorite galleries. Be sure to catch the last bus to return you to your car.

Gallery Night Guides are stationed at Regency Place and ride the Art Busses. They offer information about different art exhibitions and point out the city’s historic and architectural treasures.

Celebrity Guided Tours offer a chance to mix and mingle with people who care deeply about art. Celebrity Guides run the gamut from the curators and academics who shape opinions about art to the artists whose lives’ work is giving form to their passion. Take a tour and follow in the footsteps of someone who thinks a lot about art and enhance your personal point of view. As always, we end the season in November with our one-of-a-kind art shopping tour.
