Paseo First Friday: Unique arts, distinctive atmosphere and more

This artwork, by Sam Charboneau, is one of the works you are likely to see on display at the Paseo Arts District's First Friday Gallery Walk, Sept. 2.

The Paseo Arts District’s First Friday Gallery Walk for September will take place on Friday, Sep. 2, from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. The Paseo Arts Association’s Annual Photofest will continue at the Paseo Art Space (3022 Paseo) through Oct 1. This juried exhibition showcases all types of photography-based artwork, including traditional and digital processes and mixed media work.

Among the live entertainment slated for September is Oklahoma singer/songwriter Derek Harris. Derek is currently the lead singer for 100 Bones and his music is a mix of rock, blues, reggae and soul, all lyrics written by him.

Street cuisine foods for September include Phill Me Up Cheesesteaks, authentic cheesesteak sandwiches and Rolling Café will be serving up their delicious monster wraps and stacker sandwiches!

Each First Friday, Paseo galleries offer special themed exhibits, refreshments, guest artists and a variety of entertainment opportunities – all within walking distance. More than 80 artists in over 20 galleries participate. Three restaurants and a handful of shops round out the Paseo’s distinctive atmosphere. The Paseo is Oklahoma City’s unique arts destination, located between NW 27th & 30th Streets and Walker & Hudson.
