First Friday Gallery Openings

Both DC and Philly hold First Friday joint gallery openings and/or extended hours.

In Philly, the Old City area galleries (around forty galleries and art venues) are open from 5 till 9 p.m. Details here.

In DC, the Dupont Circle area galleries (around 15 venues or so) are usually open from 6-8PM. Details here.

Also in DC, Project 4 has an opening tonight from 6-8:30PM for Ivanny Pagan, who is a Philadelphia-based painter (and whose work I think that I would like a lot) and Rich MacDonald, a Baltimore-based photographer.

In Philly, Nexus has completed the move to a new home in the Crane Arts Building in Fishtown.

They will we reopen Nexus in their new home and at the same time inaugurate "Second Thursdays," a new monthly event of openings by galleries that are north of Northern Liberties.

Second Thursdays will be held February 8th from 6 to 9 PM. However, they will also be open on First Fridays from 6 to 9 PM.
