A Virtual Gallery
The First Friday Art Tour is an ArtWalla sponsored event which runs every First Friday 4:30 - 7pm from April-October. Due to our current health crisis, First Fridays have been moved to virtual events, meaning that ArtWalla will be highlighting local artists via our Facebook page and website.
Every First Friday, ArtWalla hosts a Pop-Up show that brings three artists from our community to display their work in our headquarters at the downtown Showroom on Colville Street. For our virtual First Friday event, we will post photos of each artist’s work, as well as a brief artist interview on our website.
In addition, this year ArtWalla is beginning to host special events in our headquarters, ranging from dance performances to music and interactive art making displays. April’s special event is a dance performance, a video of which will also be posted on our Facebook and website.
Until the stay at home order is lifted, we will be posting featured artists at some of our First Friday Art Tour venues, bringing the Art Tour to you.
In a myriad of ways, our community has new challenges that we must face together. At ArtWalla, we remain committed to our mission of promoting the arts in our community, and we believe that with these new challenges comes new opportunities for art interaction and art stewardship. Please join us in finding new ways to support the arts in our community by visiting our Facebook page and our website to begin another year of First Friday.
