Join us for the first Friday May Gallery Hop in the Winston-Salem Art District, located along Sixth Street, Trade Street from Fifth-Seventh Streets, and Liberty Street from Fifth to Sixth Street to celebrate art, local artists and enjoy receptions, extended hours and great hands-on art opportunities.
