Kick off July with First Friday downtown

Suzanne CadaDowntown, Our Town Arts

It’s First Friday time again on July 1. Come celebrate local artists and enjoy new exhibitions, artist demos and live music at the Emporium Center downtown at 100 S. Gay Street from 5-9 p.m.

Among the newest exhibitions is a collection of small tapestries designed and woven by American Tapestry Alliance members. Members explored and experimented with new designs, materials and techniques in a small format as well as exploring the theme of “Tiny But Mighty.” This year’s exhibit features 138 hand woven tapestries from members in the United States and from around the world including Japan, Israel, and Brazil.

Other First Friday happenings are detailed here, including exhibitions, music, performances, culinary arts, public art and more. Be on the lookout for the ArtWalk flags outside of participating downtown First Friday venues.

For info on other local events, contact the Arts & Culture Alliance.

Suzanne Cada is deputy director of the Arts & Culture Alliance.
