1st Thursdays

Best way to start the month



1st Thursday is an evening of art and culture in downtown Santa Barbara. On the first Thursday of each month, participating galleries and art-related venues offer free access to visual and performing art in a fun and social environment from 5-8pm. 1st Thursday venues feature attractions such as art openings, live music, artists' receptions, lectures, wine tastings and hands-on activities.

Join us for 1st Thursdays at the

Channing Peake Gallery  

We also host 1st Thursday events periodically in the Santa Barbara City Hall Gallery.

Both galleries feature a rotating series of exhibitions by local artists and cultural practitioners.
