Early in 1992, a group of local artists decided they wanted to share a gallery and studio space. They found available space in Old Town Fredericksburg, pooled their paint and opened the door a month or so later. From that point, Art First Inc. has evolved into an exciting and innovative artists' cooperative of juried members proudly sharing their quest for visual perfection. Many of Art First's members offer private or group lessons. The first Friday of every month, the gallery participates in Fredericksburg's on-going art walk, First Friday, where local galleries syncronize openings so that interested patrons can "gallery hop" to enjoy the newly displayed works. Art First's opening receptions are always 6-9 PM at the gallery. These receptions are free and open to the public. Please come and meet the artists and enjoy our new works.
