Ready to get all artsy and hit up this First Friday thing everyone's been buzzing about -- even Travel and Leisure? Well, this Friday, July 6, is the day, and to help you with your advance planning -- there are too many galleries hosting shows not to have a plan -- we've put together a cheat-sheet slide show of what is being displayed in the town's various arts districts.
Just remember: At least look at the art before grabbing the free glass of wine from those galleries still serving... Or better yet, bring your own swill in a flask. Less time fighting the crowds for the bar means all the more time to spy the artwork.
Enjoy! -- Amy Haimerl

**Pirate gets a slide show to itself because it was the only gallery in the Navajo Street district that returned our calls/e-mails for information and photographs.
If you find other galleries you think we should include in our roundup in future months, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
