The heart of North Beach First Fridays is our network of local galleries, some of which have been around since the 1950s. Featuring an exciting variety of 2D and 3D art in styles ranging from more traditional and Modernist to contemporary and experimental, all our galleries are small, locally owned endeavors bringing to light artists both established and emerging. Some galleries, such as Macchiarini Creative Design, offer classes in their craft—in their case, fine modernist jewelry—while others, such as The Beat Museum, offer viewing tours of historical artifacts enshrining our neighborhood's infamous past in addition to literary events bridging that past to the present Zeitgeist.
Beyond traditional galleries, many local merchants have created space for artists and performers to share their work in innovative ways. We are always looking for new talent and pop-up opportunities to pair restaurants and retail with art, so let us know if there's something you'd like to see or do in Da Beach!
