Gallery Main Street’s first exhibit for 2018, “Origins,” will open with a reception for the public from 5:30 to 8 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 13 at the Gallery, 110 W. Erwin St.

Saturday’s reception will feature an opportunity to meet the artists and purchase artwork. Best in Show will be announced about 6:30 p.m.

The free event is open to the public.

The Gallery opening will coincide with “Hit the Bricks,” a Second Saturday event organized by Visit Tyler. The event will feature a variety of activities throughout the central downtown area.

“In addition to enjoying the gallery opening and second Saturday, we invite our guests to make it a complete evening by enjoying drinks and dining at our variety of downtown Tyler restaurants and bars,” said Amber Rojas, interim Gallery Main Street manager and historic preservation officer for the city of Tyler.

Gallery Main Street is a project of the city of Tyler Main Street Department in cooperation with the volunteers of the Downtown Tyler Arts Coalition and Heart of Tyler Inc.

The Gallery opens a new juried exhibit approximately every eight weeks.
