An Edible Twist to Fourth Friday Gallery Night

Posted Nov 23rd, 2018 in Weekend Wish List


When you crave some artistic enrichment, check the calendar! On the fourth Friday of every month artists in Downtown Wilmington host the Fourth Friday Gallery Night. These monthly, evening events give you a chance to escape from the daily grind, relax and browse the work of local artists at your leisure.


In the fourth week of November, Americans also celebrate Thanksgiving with a hearty feast. By Friday, you will be ready to freshen your palate with something other than turkey. With this in mind, the local art community has partnered with four, Downtown restaurants so that art lovers can enjoy the work of select artists while dining. The “Fine Art of Dining” is presented by Art in Bloom Gallery in conjunction with Platypus & Gnome, Pinpoint Restaurant, The District Kitchen & Cocktails and Waterline Brewing Co.


Whatever your tastes, you will certainly find something to love at the family-friendly, Fourth Friday Gallery Night. Started six years ago by a handful of artists, this celebration has expanded to include 22 different venues.  While many are concentrated in the central downtown area, others galleries and studios are open in the Brooklyn Arts District on the north side, and The Artworks (housing a collection with dozens of artists) serves as a destination in the South Front District.

Fourth Friday Gallery Night hours: 6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. each fourth Friday of the month

Taking part is easy—just show up at one of the galleries listed here, pick up a map and enjoy!

But wait, there’s more! This Friday, the Downtown Holiday Tree Lighting takes place at the foot of Market Street. Starting at 5:30 p.m., this event features music and caroling, a visit with Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus and the lighting of the Holiday Tree.

Happy Holidays!
