Arts Alley at 4th Fridays:

WHAT: "Arts Alley" is a unique opportunity for the Westerville Art League to exhibit our art to the Westerville community. Arts Alley is the "visual arts area" of the larger event known as "4th Friday". As the name implies, every 4th Friday through the warm season, April - NOTE: this is an outdoor venue

WHERE: NEW location behind Westerville Automotive 31 East Main Street on Haywood Alley!

WHO: all members of WAL are encouraged to take advantage of this special opportunity to show our individual artistic creations with the Westerville community; if there are not enough WAL artists to use all available display space, we will invite non-WAL artists to display as well

WHY: why not? Displaying your art work at Arts Alley is fun, free, and easy! And, you'll be in the company of other very interesting and creative people- your fellow WAL artists (and maybe a few other artists as well)!

there is no fee for individual artists to exhibit at Arts Alley; the Arts Council of Westerville has generously paid the fees for the booth space we use to display our art for all 6 Arts Alley events
we have 4 tables for artists to use who display art that cannot be hung we have sturdy, aesthetically pleasing display panels for artists whose art can be hung; panels are large enough to accommodate up to 70 medium sized works of art
you need to bring you own chair artists are, of course, more than welcome to sell their art work; you may still display art that is "Not For Sale", if you choose electricity is available at a nearby electrical outlet; however, you will need to bring your own extension cords
there are no tents or shelters to protect your art from rain, should that occur; you will need to be prepared to cover and protect your own art work if necessary

HOW TO PARTICIPATE IN ARTS ALLEY: to better coordinate this event, and be sure we have adequate display space for artists, please be sure and contact John Cameron to reserve a spot at Arts Alley; you can reach John at: 614-282-1184and/or:
