During the season there is an art walk when all of the galleries are open. Some even offer wine to lubricate your wallet.

We always go to the Thursday night Art Walk. Besides visiting the galleries, and talking with some of the artists, there is music. It is a much cooler way to explore the district at night

There is an art walk along Main on Thursday nights (not so in the hotter summer months). Most of the galleries are open there, in addition to restaurants and bars.
