Troy Night Out is an arts walk that takes place the last Friday of every month from 5-9 pm, and it’s always hopping. Here’s some of the highlights of what we saw last Friday:
John Cooley’s “Window #1” at The Atrium:
Troy’s last-Friday-of-the-month arts walk is the best in Nippertown, and this Friday’s event offers plenty of reasons to get out for a stroll through the downtown of the Collar City.
Here are just a few of the reasons to hit the streets for Troy Night Out on Friday, July 31:
The Arts Center of the Capital Region @ 265 River St., Troy: The opening reception for “The Fence Select” exhibit. Awards ceremonies at 7:30pm. Dance performances by Nacre in the theater at 6pm, 7pm and 8pm.
The Photography Center @ 404 River St., Troy: Reception for the third annual members’ exhibit.
Casper Land @ 469 Fulton St., Troy: One of the very cool new Nippertown spots where visual art and music intersect. Electronic music with heart. Free performance by Dewanatron at 7pm.
The River Street Beat Shop @ 197 River St., Troy: Tons of vintage vinyl and a free performance by the Static Port.
The Clement Art Gallery @ 201 Broadway, Troy: Opening reception for “Group Show, Pt. 1” featuring artworks by some of Nippertown’s finest, including David Brickman, Elizabeth Dubben, Mark Gregory, Gary Shankman, Michael Bergt, Charles Bremer, Tom Clement, Corneila Schmitter, Kaars Syperstein.

The monthly Troy Night Out continues to set the bar high for Nippertown arts and music activities. As a reminder, Troy Night Out takes place on the last Friday of each month in downtown Troy. And the Troy arts community continues to grow and strengthen. This month, two new venues – the Artcentric Gift Gallery and Casper Land Studio & Gallery – celebrated their grand openings.
