First Thursday Bonus!

If you’ve been in Austin for at least a couple years, you’ve probably heard of First Thursday, one of the most popular local events when shops, restaurants, and art galleries on South Congress stay open late on the first Thursday of every month.  But, you may not have known about West End Gallery Night that takes place in conjunction with First Thursday, but on West 5th and 6th Streets in some of Austin’s finest galleries.  Pop on in for some drinks and snacks as you admire local and traveling art this Thursday, May 7th, and on First Thursday nights from here on out!

First Thursday Alternative Entertainment: West End Gallery Night, W. 5th and W. 6th Galleries open until 8 PM, including Steven L. Clark Gallery, Wally Workman Gallery, Russell Collection, F8 Fine Art Gallery, Lotus Gallery, Haven, ART on 5th, and Sterling Images.  Click here for a map and gallery listing.
