First Friday is a city-wide art gallery walk held on the first Friday of every month.  FCCA hosts a reception from 6-8:30 PM with a Juror's talk given from 6-6:30 PM.  This gives the docents, artists, and others who are interested an opportunity to be informed & understand why the Juror (who has been chosen specifically for this show) has selected the pieces to be exhibited for this particular art show. 

Entertainment at FCCA for First Friday, February 6th: The Portobago Classics, a trio of keyboard and two violins, provided classical background music following the Juror's Talk and presentation of awards for the February Regional Artists Exhibit.  Please join Helmut Von Berg and his trio at FCCA to celebrate the arts.
