“Across the street from Calavera”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

My husband and I had a nice dinner at Calavera before walking across the street to Artspace for First Friday. Appreciated the live music and variety of artists in a unique and quaint setting.

“Great downtown Raleigh stop on First Friday”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

Variety of artists practicing their skills in various forms of media in one large, centrally located building. Typically live music present with basic refreshments available. Excellent alternative to the drunken barhopping that is typical of the downtown meat market scene.

“First Friday!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

My wife drags me there for First Friday and it was awesome. It's the first Friday of every month and the gallery features some very interesting local artists. And they usually are giving out finger food and maybe the occasional glass of wine.
The art is interesting also. My favorite is Anna Podris who does this funky thing with bees wax (I think it's called Encaustic). Anyway, her stuff is wimsical and a lot of fun.
