Elk Rapids is celebrating arts and artists through this weekend during Art Beat with Twisted Fish, Blue Heron and Mullaly’s 128 Galleries. For over 10 years these collaborative galleries have hosted a bi-annual gallery tour each June & October. The eight day events urges all to visit each gallery as often as desired, get “stamped” at each visit and then enter your stamps into a drawing for a $100 Gift Certificate. Meet local artists, see demonstrations, bring family & friends and explore the best that Elk Rapids offers in a myriad of art forms. And, don’t forget to visit Art Rapids’ Walk of Art as part our the tour. Runs through June 11. Art Beat Info here. Walk of Art info here
