1st Friday Logo

Our Mission:

1st Friday, administered by the Upstate Artists Guild and coordinated by Tammy Maddalla, aims to introduce a wider audience to the unique vitality of the artists and venues of Albany. 1st Friday promotes interest in the arts by making it accessible, thereby strengthening the arts community in Albany.

We invite artists, groups, galleries and businesses to be a part of this monthly event that happens on the first Friday of each month.

If you would like to learn more about sponsorship opportunities, please contact the 1st Friday Coordinator Tammy Maddalla to learn about the benefits of supporting a unique local tradition.
