First Friday is right around the corner for August, 2014. At Fresh Gallery, we like to highlight our artists during the First Friday festivities. For August, it is our pleasure to feature Marian Chamberlain and Angel Brame.
The July Art Walk is traditionally a smaller, more intimate affair. Summer is in full swing, the university galleries are on summer break, and a few of our members take time off for family and vacations. But that doesn’t mean we don’t have some amazing artist shows, demonstrations, music and more!
First Friday is right around the corner for July, 2014. At Fresh Gallery, we love the opportunity to feature our very own incredible artists. For July, we are proud to present Linda Passeri and Alan O’Neal.
