It SUMMER VACATION! Time to pull out the white pants and cruise Gallery Walk on Friday, June 4, with most galleries open from 5 – 8 pm.
Held the first Friday of every month since 1989 in its scenic and historic downtown, Hot Springs’ monthly Gallery Walk features the opening of new art exhibitions showcased in downtown fine art galleries and studio spaces.
