First Friday Raleigh 

When: First Fridays

Triangle cities seldom feel livelier than on their monthly Friday night art walks, when galleries lure in pedestrians with free booze, cheese plates, hobnobbing and—what am I forgetting?—oh yeah, art. This Friday in Raleigh, Lump displays Thad Kellstadt's Range Life, colorful paintings of an alien Midwest. Local Color Gallery presents Art of Spring, mixed media work by 14 female artists. Blake Street Shops & Studios has various offerings including Image and Imagination, which features Zac Bender's fantastical paintings, Maria O'Farrell's nature photography and Blaine Willis' acrylics. Artspace shows multimedia artist Jaclyn Bowie's Fabricating Disaster, while VanNess & Fellows Tattoo Boutique offers Zach Brown's Shadow-play: Dark Narrations and Portraits in Infamy in oils and colored pencils. The Mahler Fine Art promises Inner Harmony ...Learning from the Buddhist Spirit, Jon Kolkin's palladium prints of Buddhist monks and nuns. Adam Cave Fine Art has a new show of rural landscapes by oil painter Joseph Cave. CAM Raleigh continues to show off work by 2014 NC Arts Council Fellows, while Nicole's Studio and Art Gallery features The Human Touch, spotlighting painters Nicole Kennedy and Dan Beck. Off the beaten path, Historic Oakwood Cemetery inaugurates First Friday Night Flashlight Walks, hourlong walking tours of famous graves. Pre-register and bring your own flashlight. Most galleries open at 6 p.m., but times do vary. Check your destination of interest's website for details. —Brian Howe
