After last month's test run, this week brings the first official Preview Thursday to Wynwood's galleries. As outlined in New Times this week, Preview Thursday is an effort by the galleries to make their art available to people who want to experience it without the attendant hoopla of Second Saturdays.
Tonight, about 30 of the galleries will be extending their hours until at least 9 p.m. and eight galleries will be hosting opening receptions. Not all of these galleries will be staying open for Second Saturday so, even if you're planning on being back later in the week, Preview Thursday might be your best bet to check them out (especially if you have something stupid like a job on weekdays).
Though subject to change, below are all of the galleries that have said they are participating in Preview Thursday, organized in a convenient block-by-block order. And if you can't wait two days to drunkenly rub against strangers, Wynwood's bars and restaurants will also be open for your sexy, sexy business. Happy arting!
