First Fridays is an initiative launched by Yukon Artists at Work and another Whitehorse gallery, Arts Underground. The Northern Cultural Expressions Society, with its beautiful gallery and workspace at the top of Main Street, has joined us on a trial basis this spring and summer. Members of the public are encouraged to take a self-directed art crawl among the galleries on the first Friday of every month to enjoy art, snacks and refreshments.

The June crawl takes place on Friday, June 7th from 5 to 7 pm.

At the YAAW solo gallery (little blue house on the corner of 4th Ave. and Wood St.) there’ll be an opening of the members’ group show “Another Day in Paradise”, which celebrates all that we love about the Yukon.

At Arts Underground, located in the basement of the Hougens Centre (305 Main Street), there’ll be an opening of their members’ group show “Flora & Fauna”.

At The Northern Cultural Expressions Society (704 Main Street), they will feature the beautiful work of Dene artist Kiyera Smith.
