Free art, wine + snacks? Need I seriously say more? Really though, that combination makes for a perfect evening in my opinion. If you agree, I strongly encourage you and your friends to check out First Fridays in the Exchange District. It’s an open door event from 5:00pm-9:00pm on the FIRST Friday of every month, where artists/architects/galleries/businesses open their doors for FREE, most offering wine and snacks.
Coolest thing ever, I know.
My girlfriend was the one who found out about it, and I was surprised that I had never heard of it before. Totally up our alley, we had to check it out. Friday August 2nd was my first First Friday. As a painter, I found it to be a fascinating, inspiring and incredibly fun experience. The artists were up to answer any of my questions, some even offering tips on what to purchase for same effects, looks, techniques etc. I saw many different artists’ unique work and I visited galleries and businesses that I didn’t even know existed.
