Come for the History, Stay for the Art
Everybody knows about Fredericksburg’s historical significance, but we’re also home to a burgeoning art scene with a myriad of art galleries, workshops and independent artists! We celebrate our vibrant artistic community on the first Friday of every month: galleries, restaurants, cafes, shops and even workout studios open their doors to showcase local artists. In the warmer months, it’s not uncommon to see musicians on the street and a friendly crowd enjoying refreshments as they traipse from business to business downtown. There’s even a free First Friday trolley from 6-9pm with stops near many of the galleries and convenient free parking lots! If you’re visiting Fredericksburg, the trolley runs through some of our City’s charming residential neighborhoods so you can get a feel for what it’s like to live here!
Home is an Art Form
We’re especially excited about this First Friday because we’re hosting “Home is an Art Form,” a showcase of many local artists from LibertyTown Arts Workshop in our Downtown office at 520 William Street! We’ll also have renderings of the gorgeous to-be-built condos at 600 Amelia St on display, a specialty thyme-based cocktail courtesy of Sedona Taphouse and plenty of refreshments! It’s shaping up to a be a beautiful night out and we’re so happy to be participating in the First Friday tradition!
Some of the other notable First Friday exhibits are the terrarium workshop at Ponshop, the Route 66-themed photography exhibit at Brush Strokes Gallery, and the UMW Invitational Student Art Show across the street from us at LibertyTown Arts!
We’d love to see everyone out this Friday at our Home is an Art Form exhibit! We’re right next to Stop F on the trolley, so grab a free cocktail and some snacks while you peruse the art!
