  • Tue-Thu 10pm-2am
This Lincoln Heights gallery, through spirit and vision, manages to gather incredible coteries of artists, musicians and other less categorizable cultural practitioners to its events. Started by artist Davida Nemeroff and lately joined by collaborator Mieke Marple, Night Gallery opens at about 10 p.m. each evening and serves as a place for serious-minded artists to gather, blow off steam and enjoy the work of their peers and contemporaries. It’s a spot for art aficionados and creatives to co-mingle after hours, enjoy a beer and look at some great work.
