There is art all over Jefferson City. To help bring attention to the varying art forms and galleries throughout the Capital City, the fifth annual Art Exposed Gallery Crawl will take place from 4:30-8:30 p.m. on Oct. 28.
The event is great for art lovers of all ages, Janet Mauer of Capital Arts said some families use them as a mother/ daughter night out.
“This is a chance for a free night of fun throughout the city,” she said.
Seven galleries are once again taking part in the crawl that will feature light snacks and door prizes at most locations.
AFI Designer Gallery located within the Capital Mall will feature various local artists work.
Capital Arts, 1203 Missouri Blvd., will have its “People and Portraits” exhibit on display. The night of the crawl local artist and William Woods Art Professor Terry Martin will be on hand selling and signing copies of his book, “Children, Dogs and Sunflowers.”
The Dunklin Street Gallery, 121 W. Dunklin St., will feature the original works of local artist Katheryn Hajaved. Dottie Ewers, gallery owner, said she hoped to have the fired sculptures that were made during a recent sculpture workshop that was led by Paul Clervi, William Woods art professor.

The event is free and attendees can find cards with gallery names, addresses and a map at each location. There is no defined start or end point.
Mauer said purpose of the event is to let the community know of all of the different types of art that not only local artists create but that are displayed throughout town.
“You will not walk into a gallery and see the same thing,” she said. “There are different mediums, different styles and something for everyone to see and enjoy.”
