If the madness of First Fridays in the Crossroads District has you pining for the days when no one gave two shits about local art, consider venturing to Lawrence from 7 to 9 tonight for the substantially more low-key Downtown Gallery Walk. Now in its sixth year, the event — occurring on selected last Fridays — showcases exhibitions and artist demonstrations at nine Larryville galleries. The 6 Gallery (716 D Massachusetts, 785-856-6480) is injecting some new blood into the scene with group shows centered on common themes. The Phoenix Gallery (919 Massachusetts, 785-843-0080) is showcasing Steve Ramberg's nature photographs and Jonah Seibel's modern metal home accessories and furniture. Diane's Artisan Gallery (801 D Massachusetts, 785-856-1155) highlights the crafty side of things with jewelry, glass, hand-wovens and pottery. Other participating galleries include the Lawrence Arts Center, Southwest and More, Kimbari, Signs of Life and Bella Memento.
