The City of Delray Beach has announced it will be launching a new event known as the First Friday Art Walk, to be held the first Friday of every month, beginning in June. The event is meant to support the city’s art community, as well as the downtown art galleries and studios. Each event is free, and open to the public. The First Friday Art Walk in Downtown Delray Beach began on Friday, June 6th from 6-9 p.m. Moving forward, gallery owners and local artists, along with the Delray Beach Downtown Development Authority, will continue to put together an evening of fine art, meet- and-greet engagements, and live demonstrations that will take place the first Friday of each month all year long. Known as South Florida’s Fine Art District, Delray Beach is home to over 30 galleries and studios, as well as over 800 local artists – there is no wonder a night each month has been dedicated to sharing talent and fine art with the community. “We are thrilled to have created this opportunity to show our artwork and socialize during a festive evening each month,” expresses Lois Brezinski, owner and artist of Artworks. “The talent within our Village by the Sea is amazing and we really want to invite everyone to take time to explore each gallery and meet the artists.” The month of July will be the only exception, taking place the second Friday of the month due to the Independence Day holiday.
