Come say hi to your friends at TCD at Bay View Gallery Night, tonight at Alterra.

As if Milwaukee wasn’t shining her social love light brightly enough this weekend, add another luminous event to the mix. The Alchemist Theatre and Made in Milwaukee play host to Bay View Gallery Night (BVGN) this evening, Friday, Sept. 28.

It’s a chance to explore the Bay View community through its businesses and check out some great Milwaukee artists. More than 35 local businesses will host more than 70 local artists and 20 local bands. Most venues will be featuring artists from 5 p.m. – 9 p.m., with most of the live bands to round out the later hours of the evening.

The Alchemist Theatre will be featuring photography by Shane Gardner and music from Todd Richards. Alterra Coffee’s newest location will host over 30 artists and craftspeople (including TCD, so stop by our booth and get your picture taken) with live music from Kyle Feerik in their parking lot for the BVGN Art Fair.

Visit Sweet Water for tours of their garden, an art show from Justseeds and a dance performance from Friction Dance Company. Freya salon is celebrating their anniversary in conjunction with the event and will feature five local artists, a pig roast (courtesy of Cafe Centraal) and music from Sat Nite Duets and Fatty Acids. Bay View resident and artist, Jeanie Gao, will host an event highlighting four local artists, live music and screen-printing demos at her gallery, as well as displaying her own work at Cafe LuLu.

TCD will have photographers and staffers roaming the neighborhood, tweeting all the highlights and collecting images for a photo gallery to be published on our website. Just pull up hashtag #TCDFall to follow along (check below for real-time updates), or use it to share your own adventures. More information on the evening can be found here, as well as a mobile map here.
