First Friday is a monthly occurrence and as the name suggests, happens on the first Friday of the month. It is coordinated by the Upstate Artists Guild. Businesses and churches in the area provide space for local artists to display their art and have a free open house during First Friday - some with live entertainment. The shop participates in this community event - the art in the shop changes monthly. If interested in exhibiting your art for a month and participating in a First Friday event contact Dan.
