May is usually a good time for a stroll — or at least the art exhibitors taking part in this month's gallerystroll.org/index.htm">Salt Lake Gallery Stroll Friday, May 17, hope it is.

The monthly open house for local art galleries takes place from 6 to 9 p.m. at galleries in and around downtown Salt Lake City. Go to gallerystroll.org for a list of participating galleries.

Here are a few highlights:

Stroll or roll • Since May is National Bike Month, organizers of the Gallery Stroll are encouraging folks to ride bikes between galleries. SLC Bicycle Company (177 E. 200 South, Salt Lake City) is playing host to the fifth annual "Bicycle Art Show," featuring artworks with a two-wheeled theme.

'Tin' at Rio Gallery • Utah Arts & Museums is going back into the archives for "Tin," a show now open at the Rio Gallery, inside the Rio Grande Depot, 300 S. 455 West, Salt Lake City. Works by more than 40 artists, all made during their days at the Brigham Young University art department from the early '90s to the early '00s, will be presented. While some metalwork is included in the exhibit, the title refers to the traditional gift given at one's 10th wedding anniversary.

Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi • Blonde Grizzly, 213 E. 300 South, Salt Lake City, is mounting its second annual "Star Wars" group show. More than 20 artists are giving in to the Dark Side to participate.
