The BelfastArts Friday gallery walks continue Aug. 24 from 5 to 8 p.m. More than 20 art venues invite the public to enjoy leisurely visits through the intimacy of their downtown galleries that showcase a variety of work including painting, sculpture, photography, mixed media and jewelry.

Community drumming troupe Inner Rhythm will be roaming and performing in the streets, and Katie Thompson of the Rockport Dance Conservatory will offer an eclectic mix of jazz, hip-hop and modern dance.
