About Gallery Night

Gallery Night is a long-time Madison arts tradition that showcases the city’s vibrant arts community. Organized by MMoCA, Gallery Night offers art lovers and art novices alike an opportunity to enjoy a wide variety of exhibitions, opening receptions, special events, and demonstrations at venues throughout the city. During Gallery Night, dozens of venues open their doors to invite the public in to see and shop for original artwork.

Gallery Night takes place from 5-9 PM, though some participating venues set their own hours. All venues participating in Gallery Night are open free of charge.

Spring 2022 Gallery Night was held on Friday, May 6. View a list of participating venues here.

Fall 2022 Gallery Night will be held on Friday, November 4. Check back later this summer for information on how to register, or email kaitlin@mmoca.org to have your email added to our notification list.
