Following the success of the spring Mid City Art Thaw, art galleries and dealers in the midcity area are hosting opening receptions for a summer show, A Mid City Night’s Dream, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Thursday, July 14.

A smaller, more intimate event than the spring and fall midcity art hops, A Mid City Night’s Dream allows viewing of the newest artistic releases, as well as a chance to meet and talk with the artists.

Participating businesses include Artists Inside Circa 1857, Artvark Ltd., Brew Ha Ha!, Caffery Gallery, Elizabethan Gallery, Gallery Bohemia, Mimosa by M.E., Mosaic Garden, Rue Cou Cou, Sally’s Circa 1857 and VanGuard Gallery.

The Mid City Art and Design District is a designated cultural district with no sales tax on original art.
