As this week comes to a close, Downtown Ellensburg will see the monthly First Friday Art Walk, a first for the year of 2018.

This is an event which, excluding January, occurs the first Friday of every month, as suggested by its namesake.

Patrons will be offered a map in each of the locations of the available venues, there is also a map available online. They will be able to take a tour of them while enjoying wine and hors d’oeuvres, among other things, and appreciating art.

Among the many participating organizations is Gallery One. Their focus revolves around three abstract artists, Bobby Halperin, Catherine Cook and Robert Wilson.

Renee Adams, exhibition and marketing coordinator at Gallery One, took the reins on the layout and placement of each art piece. She made it a point to not segregate the pieces by artist.

“I really liked the dialogue between the images,” Adams said, noting how pieces showcased in close proximity shared specific artistic factors, be it their utilization of shapes or colors.

Aside from their abstract gallery, Gallery One will also host a member’s show. Anyone is allowed to view but Gallery One members will be allowed to exhibit one piece each.

Each organization attempts to spice up what they present for every First Friday Art Walk, so this Friday will be different from the others to come.

“We want to share all that art has to offer,” executive director of Gallery One Monica Miller said.
