First Friday Returns to Beaverton and the Silent Auction Returns to Art On Broadway
First Friday returns to downtown Beaverton on May 3 and that means that our gallery artists will once again offer opportunities to purchase original artwork at reduced prices through our popular Silent Auction event. Bidding starts at 5 p.m. with opening bid amounts placed by the artists and continues during the evening. It's a fun way to purchase beautiful artwork and perhaps get a great bargain at the same time. The gallery is open until 9 p.m. on First Fridays, but we stop taking bids at 8:30 p.m.
One of the pieces being offered at the auction is the coldwax painting shown above by Pam Nichols.
There are 37 businesses participating this year, with most offering special promotions like raffles, discounts, demonstrations, wine tasting, and special coupons. Start at Pacific Continental Bank on Tucker and 1st Streets and enjoy refreshments and original art by three local artists. Then stroll thru the downtown core stopping at each business that displays a First Friday garden sign. Stop and listen to the official First Friday band "Riverside Northwest" which will entertain visitors at the intersection of West and Broadway. Shop local and enjoy a delightful evening in Beaverton's downtown!
