Fabulous Fridays

December 14, 2009 by Kate Crowley

Well kids, we’ve all been to First Friday, but have you checked out Third Friday? Third Fridays have become the evening of choice for artists and art collectors to experience visual art, live music and the best of award-winning local dining in Downtown Phoenix.  Its fun, just a little more low key than first Fridays. 

Every month there are new opening receptions, shopping, dining opportunities and live entertainment in a casual environment. Here are some venues who are open every Third Friday, and the reasons I love them:

Galleries
515 (THE place to get work from Arizona artists, at a great price)
anti_space
eye lounge
Pravus (I know the owners of this place and one of my favorite artists, Roy Wasson Valle, will have work featured there this month!)
The Kitchenette Galleria
The Berlin Gallery at the Heard Museum Shop
Celtica Daughters of the Frozen North
Tilt Gallery

Museums
Heard Museum’s Native+You features contemporary art, music, dance, dining and a cash bar. (Its a one-stop shop with several things to do and see each month.)
