Uptown Art Hop

Next Friday, November the 21st, will be the first Uptown Art Hop.

The newly formed arts, shopping and entertainment district, UPTOWN AT 43RD STREET, proudly presents the UPTOWN ART HOP. The district includes art galleries, businesses and restaurants in Thornebrook Village, The Market Place and Millhopper Square.

Join us for our inaugural art hop Friday, November 21, 2008, from 6 to 9 PM.

Event attendees will be able to pick a map up from any of the participating businesses and “hop” from place to place enjoying an evening of shopping, refreshments, and artist demonstrations. Join us to see a sampling of some of the best art in Gainesville, ranging from one-of-a-kind locally made art, to gifts from the far corners of the earth. A rickshaw shuttle will allow event goers to easily travel the short distance between stops.

We would really love it if some of our regulars were available that night to swing by and hang out, showing what we all know– that knitting and crochet is pretty darn hip! We will be having a spinning class on one half of the store but would love to fill “the living room” up with great folks! To entice you more, we will be serving wine and nibbles, as will most everyone else in the plaza (I hear that Alternatives is going to have Sangria, yum!). We’ll be open that night until 9 PM, and would really love to have you swing by!

And if you do swing by, don't just visit us-- there are a ton of other shops and galleries open that night, all serving wine and showing off the great things that you can buy locally (many of which are also produced locally). Because if you're buying locally, you're investing in our community!
