Oceanside, California – April 23, 2019

First Friday Art Walk Oceanside will be held at Artist Alley in downtown Oceanside on Friday, May 3rd from 5:00pm – 9:00pm.

First Friday Art Walk will be sold out for our Artist Alley venue as we continue to attract more local artists and expanding crowds for our monthly event. We are especially excited this month to announce the addition of Don Pallia to the Oceanside Friends of the Arts board of directors. Don was one of the original instigators for Artist Alley in Oceanside and his vision has become the successful reality that it is today,” says Susan Brown, president of the Oceanside Friends of the Arts. Don is currently a member of the Sergeant Art Group and he will be exhibiting during Art Walk in the Brooks Theatre Gallery of the Oceanside Theatre Company for opening night of “Man of La Mancha”.

More than 40 local artists, food vendors and musicians will be on hand. Also in conjunction with Art Walk, the Oceanside Museum of Art(OMA) will be offering free admissions to explore OMA exhibitions.
