Art, Art and More Art: Sewickley's Fall Gallery Walk is Here

Gallery spaces on the annual walk include International Images, Ltd., Big Bang Comics and Collectibles, and SAI's 'Rebound' in the former Chico's space..

Sewickley's Fall Gallery Walk takes place on Friday, Sept. 28 and Saturday, Sept. 29 though exhibits are ongoing throughout the month.

Here is a list of galleries to visit on this year's walk:

SAI, in partnership with the Sewickley Public Library and in cooperation with the Penguin Bookstore., will present "Rebound," works of art in book form. The exhibit explores the future of the printed book in today's digital age of the e-book, when it takes a tablet, or i-Pad, less than a minute to download an entire novel. Re-bound shows how artists and writers are pushing the boundaries of how people use, create and interact with books.
