On the First Friday of the month May through October, rain or shine, the artists, galleries, shops and showrooms of the Plymouth Bay Cultural District open their doors to the public for an evening of art, culture and inspiration.
Galleries, museums, shops and restaurants will host exhibitions and other activities for people to enjoy as the walk through the Plymouth Bay Cultural District, which covers the waterfront and downtown areas. A handy online map will guide art aficionados so they experience all the culture Plymouth has to offer.
October 1 – Plymouth Center for the Arts highlights it’s 54th Annual Juried Art Show, a truly 5 Star exhibit. The New England Watercolor Society located in the Art Center, will be featuring their talented “Board of Directors Show”. Both shows are not to be missed. Chris Mindle will be the featured artist working in the gallery. Interested in “decay, distressed or worn and used objects, dark humor, emotions and the underlying stories often overlooked”, he works mainly in oils. He uses his dreams, childhood memories and fantasy landscapes to create anything from bright whimsy to science fiction to the political and intense. Stop by to meet him. Our own Plymouth Public School musicians will be performing from 5pm-7:30pm for your listening pleasure. The Artisan Shop will be open and COVID-friendly refreshments will be served. Please join us to celebrate the last of 2021 First Fridays Plymouth!
