There's a game of bingo going on Friday night during the spring Gallery Hop! in The District of Rock Island.

Game cards will be available at each "Hop Stop." To play, visitors must stop at at least five locations, have an artist sign off on their card and draw a straight line. Completed cards can be turned in at MidCoast Fine Arts, The ARTery or Quad-City Arts. A winner selected at random on Monday will receive a basket of gifts and art.

Gallery Hop! is 6-10 p.m. Friday, presented by The District, MidCoast Fine Arts and Quad-City Arts.

More than 100 artists will be showcased in 20-plus locations such as coffee shops, restaurants, retail shops and entertainment venues. Jewelry, photography, woodwork, glass, paintings, drawings, book signings, sculpture, live music and more will be featured.

Quad-City Arts' gallery features entries in the 38th annual High School Exhibition. The exhibition will showcase works from 196 art educators and students from 15 schools.

Also, the unoccupied suites at The Shoppes on 2nd will serve to feature seven artists during Gallery Hop!
