Information for Artists

Are you an artist interested in showing at First Thursday? Because of the popularity of First Thursdays and the tremendous crowds they draw, we receive many inquiries from artists. Artists should contact businesses in the Centre/South district directly to negotiate an exhibit of their work. If chosen, the business is responsible for providing refreshments for the artists' reception the night of First Thursday; some businesses keep the artwork on display for the entire month. Priority will be given to JP artists, but the final decision is that of the businesses.

Please look at the list of participating businesses on the "Participating Venues" page, or for a more complete list of businesses in the district, check the JP Centre/South website at: Feel free to contact businesses that do not currently participate in First Thursdays and convince them to join! It is free to participate and a great way for both of you to market your business.
