FIRST FRIDAY

The Alliance Française de Denver is a proud member of the Art District on Santa Fe and takes part in each First Friday celebration. Every two months we host a new artist in the AFD gallery wehre they exhibit their paintings, drawings or photography works. Each artist will hold a reception for their exhibit on the First Fridays while they are showing at the Alliance Française de Denver. A portion of all art sales is given back to the AFD to help support our cultural and artistic programing!
