Final Friday happens the last Friday of every month, and with all kinds of different exhibits and shopping there is something for everyone!
Hours vary between Galleries, but most are open between 7 pm – 9 pm. All venues are free and open to the public. It’s a great time to visit different Art Galleries, Museums, Retail Shops and Restaurants in the Downtown area!
Delano BBQ is excited to be featuring Wayne Clark this month at their Final Friday event! Wayne Clark is as an accomplished painter and a devoted family man, and he is an inspiration to those who know and love him. Wayne’s work as a painter is inspired by nature, but it is also enriched by his experience as a father of seven children.
