Recipient of the 2017 People’s Choice Award as favorite stop, first ever project of Zoo animal and artist collaboration, craft beer samplings, giveaways, live music, poetry readings, and much more.
NexLynx Gallery of Arts journey began when selected as one of the venues for the ReThink Topeka Exhibition and Art Walk in 2010 and each year thereafter. The ReThink Topeka Exhibition and Art Walk was a movement to spur re-building community awareness through art and cultural events. NexLynx Gallery worked closely with the former Arts Council of Topeka, and now ArtsConnect, to promote art in the community as the “must see” downtown art gallery on the Topeka First Friday Art Walk.
As always, we will have snacks, soda, craft beer and wine. This month only, we’re having a guest bartender, featured layered champagne cocktails and a champagne toast at 6pm.
We hope to see you here!
Selected Art to be on Display
NexLynx Gallery of Arts started in 2010, after being selected as one of the venues for the ReThink Topeka Exhibition and Art Walk that same year and each year after. The Re-Think Topeka Art Walk was a movement to spur re-building community awareness through art and cultural events. NexLynx continues to be a proud supporter of the art community with our monthly exhibits and opening receptions. We worked with the former Arts Council of Topeka, and now ArtsConnect to promote art in the community as a premier downtown gallery on the Downtown Topeka Art Walk.
The Gallery is located on the 2nd floor of the historic downtown Bates Building. Walter L. Bates' (1859-1903) last business enterprise was the building of the structures on the corner of Sixth Avenue and Jackson Streets, known as the Bates Block, which includes the I.O.O.F. Hall (117 W. 6th - c. 1910) and 123 W. 6th (c. 1902).
NexLynx Gallery was voted a Finalist for both 2016 and 2017 People's Choice Awards, nominated by people in the Topeka Community as their favorite stop on the First Friday Art Walk, a program of ArtsConnect.
