gallery crawl

6:00 - 9:00 p.m.

the first friday of every month


To promote visual art awareness in our community and provide a venue for showcasing emerging and established artists who add greatly to Greenville’s cultural community.

First Fridays Format

The first Friday of each month visual art galleries and venues are open from 6 – 9 PM. A wide range of art will be represented: oils, watercolors, acrylics, pottery, jewelry, glassworks, wood works, photography, and mixed media.


Each gallery is individually controlled and operated. First Fridays acts as a marketing agent for the monthly gallery crawl. Galleries decide what is shown each month and what is promoted for them. If you have questions about a particular gallery or venue, it is best to contact them!


Learn how to register your gallery for First Fridays. Galleries can register at any time during the year. Membership renews late spring / early summer.
