South End Gallery Crawl is an arts event that takes place the first Friday of every month. Galleries stay open late to host receptions for new exhibits. Many exhibits are timed to open the first Friday of the month. The events often include live music, food, and beer or wine. The events are free to attend.
Hours for the different venues might vary, but a good guideline is 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Besides the fine arts galleries in the South End, some events take place in non-conventional venues as well.
