WELCOME TO FIRST FRIDAY.
Here at Cottonwood Center for the Arts we host a gala opening reception on the first calendar Friday of every month, rain or shine, twelve months a year.
We welcome the community to the unveiling of our newly curated art installation for the month in our main galleries. On this night our two floors of studio artists open their doors, offering a behind-the-scenes look into their creative processes. Eight tertiary exhibition spaces throughout the building are open with fresh art to tour and purchase, and our main gallery bar offers refreshments and light snacks.
First Friday at Cottonwood is an open invitation to the public to explore a creative life in every form.
