First Fridays are coveted times for visual artists to show at Art Lab. The first Friday art scene is strong in Old Town. If the weather is nice, you can expect a good crowd of art lovers, whether or not you draw your own. Ideally, we like First Friday artist to keep their show up and be in the space for some open gallery hours on the the weekend. Weekends are hopping in Old Town, so you’ll be able to reach a different audience. You’re also welcome to book First Friday weekend and the following weekend if it’s available. The day before first Friday will be reserved for your setup time. If you need more time, let us know and we’ll try to accommodate.
Visual artists are also welcome to book any other day of the month. You won’t have the kind of walk-in traffic you’d get on First Friday, but if you promote the show and make it a destination event for your audience, you can have a great show.
