  • There are no fees for showing your work
  • You may show as many items as you would like
  • You may sell your work at the event or just showcase it
  • You will need to bring presentation tools for your work (ex. easels, stands)
    • We will not be hanging art on the walls but we will have gridwalls available for use

If you think this is something that you or any artists/art students you may know would be interested in, they can register here-

A little more about us and the event-

Regus is the global leader of executive office suites and we are opening up a new brand in the US that we brought over from Europe called SPACES

Spaces is where you take it the next level.  Where you’re surrounded by like-minded people whose minds are made up to make it.  The interaction here is as inspiring as the interior.  Each SPACES location is a dropped pin of possibilities, connecting you to listeners, challengers, influencers, prospects and partners.  It’s a true community, animated by a vigorous calendar of events that enables everyone to learn and connect.  With progressive Euro design SPACES emphasizes wide-open collaborative areas.

We will be continuing to host First Friday events throughout the year so stay tuned for future registration opportunities!

First Friday Denton is on the first Friday of every month, and is significant because that is the day when artists and artisans in the business district surrounding the Denton County Historic Courthouse on the Square open their doors for visitors and patrons to visit and see them at work, browse and perhaps buy a unique piece of art, jewelry or a myriad of other art objects – for yourself or someone special. And First Friday also offers patrons a chance to visit their favorite restaurants and businesses that have extended First Friday hours, so come to First Friday ready for music, art, books, coffee and great original foods.

The very nature of the business of art in Denton often means artists and their galleries keep unusual hours to take the facts of daily life into account, and we’ve all been frustrated to find our favorite gallery unexpectedly closed. The First Friday of every month in Denton, Texas, is a day you can count on the participants here to be open for business in a friendly and casual atmosphere found only in the laid back world of Denton, Texas.
