A walk through Williamsburg — especially along the crowded Bedford Avenue corridor — on a Friday night is always an experience, but on Jan. 11, there will be more than just the normal spectacle to gawk at.

At 7 pm, “Second Fridays,” the monthly program led by the Williamsburg Gallery Association to encourage visitors, will kick off again, with 36 galleries keeping their doors open until 9 pm or later. They’ll exhibit special works and serve drinks and snacks to art- and open-bar-aficionados alike.

“Second Fridays are not just a specific date to bring the art world together,” said Marissa Sage, director of Like The Spice Gallery, “but also something really unique to get a large group out.”

In addition to the jovial atmosphere that a late-night gallery walk fosters, artwork is often unveiled as a treat for “Second Friday” participants; for example, Like the Spice will be showing “Castle Critters” (pictured), a two-hour puppet musical starring artist David Marin’s owls, eels and deer.

Past editions of “Second Fridays” have included boozy after-parties at Billyburg hotspots, so prepare to look at a lot of paintings and to paint the town red.

“Second Fridays” begins at 7 pm on Friday, Jan. 11. For a complete list of participating galleries, visit
