So it’s a boring Friday night and you may be wondering what is there to do? Well come on down to First Fridays of course!

On the first Friday of every month many downtown businesses have gallery openings. As stated on their Facebook page, “First Fridays Downtown is a free celebration of culture and community held in downtown Harrisonburg. During the first Friday of the month, the downtown venues host art exhibition openings, local music performers, and various arts related events.” 

We stopped by two galleries to see the work of some of our JMU faculty and alumni; Knotweed by School of Art, Design, and Art History (SADAH) Professor Allyson Taylor, and KinAesthetic by SADAH professors Stephanie Williams and Greg Stuart, and almuni Danielle O’Brien and Braxton Congrove

First Fridays are a great way to explore downtown and see what kind of art people in the area are making. To see the participating venues and featured artists click here and don’t forget to check out their Facebook to learn more.
