On Friday, April 3, a balmy 75 degree evening, scores of Richmonders gathered and traversed the monthly art walk down Broad and Main streets. Although rain and thunderstorms threatened to send everyone home, they held off until almost everyone had the chance to check out the galleries.
Most people who frequent First Friday, the monthly Richmond art crawl, know about Gallery 5 at 200 W. Marshall St. The gallery has become popular for its quirky art exhibits, music shows, burlesque and other sideshow acts. This April, the gallery turns 10 years old, and they are not celebrating quietly.
Like the beginning of every month, the start of April means First Friday is just around the corner.
