As a VISUAL ARTIST:

Lane Arts Council hosts Artist Marketplace as an opportunity for artists to sell their original work during the First Friday ArtWalk. Artist Alley takes place inside the Farmers Market Pavilion during cooler months, and in the Farmers Market Plaza in warmer months. Learn more.
- Featured Artist
Many galleries and art venues schedule the artists featured for their specific venue. Please reach out directly to the venues you are interested in showing your work in to be featured as an artist for the ArtWalk.
As a MUSICIAN:
- At an Art Venue
The First Friday ArtWalk is primarily a visual arts event; however, there are some occasions in which music is incorporated into the event! If you would like to be hired as a musician to play at any of the art venues downtown, you will need to contact the specific art venue you are interested in.
- At Farmers Market Pavilion
Occasionally we hire musicians for First Friday ArtWalk events at the Pavilion. If you are interested in being considered, please visit our partner Bespoke Recording’s website to learn more.
