First Friday Art Walk Local Events in Delaware

Do You "Art Walk"?

If you are looking for a night out where you can see art and be social with people, you should get out locally and check to see if your area hosts a First Friday Art Walk Loop.

This is traditionally the night where galleries and shops that display or sell handmade artists work will "open" their upcoming month's exhibit.

This is the night where you can meet the artist to talk about their body of work.
Often there is a small amount of food and drink also offered so you can stay energized during the art walk loop and see a lot of the galleries in the area.

Our Delaware Etsy Street Team member
Kay Martin of GalaxieGallery will be on the Wilmington Art Loop at Bellefonte Arts!
She will be showing her "Eco Friendly" Up-Cycled Art.

Bellefonte Arts in North Wilmington is on the Wilmington Art Loop just about every month.
There are a number of Delaware Etsy Street Team Artists
selling work through this great eclectic North Wilmington Gallery.
Make sure you stop by all month long to shop for Delaware Etsy Street Team members in person!

I (Marsha of Marsha Neal Studio) stopped by Bellefonte Arts on Wednesday afternoon to add a few new items to my display case, to ask about how an artist gets ready to be on the Art Loop (as I am on the May 3 one), and to see about getting Bellefonte Arts and the Delaware Etsy Street Team more involved (details to come!).

If you know of any other local art walks around or close to DE, please leave a comment with a link to the art walk website because we would like to add them to our list!

Remember, the Art Loops often have many galleries that are hosting openings starting and ending at different times (usually in the 5pm to 9pm time frame), so wear comfy shoes and look at the websites ahead of time to know all the places you need to stop!
