Due to the July 4th holiday, the First Fridays Artswalk has been scheduled for Thursday, July 3, in order to not interfere with holiday celebrations.

An evening of receptions, music and art will kick off the holiday festivities where patrons can stroll from business to business meeting shop owners, artists, and other onlookers. Most locations will have hospitality and a "meet and greet the artist" from 5 to 8 p.m.

The Artswalk website, www.FirstFridaysArtswalk.com, provides a map to view and print on all the upcoming events. Maps can also be found in many of the businesses participating in Artswalk.

A free guided walking tour will be offered starting at 5 p.m. if group escort is desired. The starting location will be at the Berkshire Community College Gallery at the Intermodal Transportation Center at 1 Columbus Ave.
