View a previous Season of Art Walk an event in 2015.

Hello! Tonight is the last of the First Friday monthly Art Walks which have been for the past two years a new opportunity for Artists and Art patrons to have an interaction between the Artists and the Community. The Oceanside Friends of the Arts will in our future be offering First Friday Art Walks as quarterly events. Entitled Four Seasons First Friday will have many of the same elements and are adding the First Saturday as an added plus for new experiences in the Arts.

Starting in March to celebrate Spring the Four Seasons First Friday will have venues in our local merchants, restaurants, galleries and Museums. Artists Alley will play a more prominent role in our events as will our City Plaza.

We urge you to come tonight and celebrate our Holiday Season and participate in Our Oceanside's Arts District for your shopping quests. We know that you will find great Art works, wonderful food, and make new friends in our Arts Community.
