ArtHop - located in the Downtown Arts District on the first Thursday of the month from 5-8 pm, many galleries and businesses host art showings and receptions that are free and open to the public. We are involved in that event as well. We accept a limited number of outside artists/makers to show at ArtHop at no charge (donations if your work sells are optional, but appreciated). It is a one evening event at Fresno Ideaworks, and items must be removed Thursday night unless other arrangements are made.
