The Downtown Art District Association in Winston-Salem, NC, Offers DADA First Friday Gallery Hop – Aug. 7, 2015


The Downtown Art District Association in Winston-Salem, NC, is pleased to present the DADA August First Friday Gallery Hop on Friday, Aug. 7, 2015, from 7-10pm. Each month, the Gallery Hop features new artists receptions, live demonstrations and performers and collaborations with neighboring community organizations for variety and more fun.

DADA first Friday Gallery Hops are held each month in the Downtown Art District, along Trade, Liberty, from Fifth Street, Sixth Street and Seventh Streets where barricades are places for a safe and festive event. More of the Downtown Art District is found into toward Eighth Street, with the Downtown Art District becoming more diverse, creative and extending farther from the original footprint.

August brings the Annual Slice of Summer Tomato Tasting, an anticipated event sponsored by the Winston Salem Journal and local tomato farmers. Sample (for free) dozens of different varieties of tomatoes from local growers and then cast a VOTE for your favorite one! Additionally, there will be selected local restaurants on hand offering samples of their favorite tomato based recipes (while supplies last)

Exhibits for the August Hop feature artist gallery receptions throughout the Art District include:

Piedmont Craftsmen hosts a solo show in August by wood artist O’Neal Jones from Graham, NC. His woodwork ranges from functional furniture to sculptural wall pieces and mirrors. An Artisan’s Adventures in Woodworking through Demolition, Design, Dust and Delight will open on Friday, Aug. 7, 2015, from 7-10pm during the gallery hop and run through Aug. 29, 2015.

Artworks Gallery features “CEO CHEERLEADERS: pop portraits” by Mike Foley; and “Rurality: Here and There”, paintings by Cindy Taplin. Exhibit dates are Aug. 2 – 29, 2015, with an opening reception on Friday, Aug. 7, 7-10 pm.
