    A Green Flag to the Community:
    Artisana Gallery is the founding business of the grassroots First Friday Pacific Grove event that has been ongoing in Pacific Grove since March 2010 with the dedication and commitment from Adrianne Jonson (co-owner Artisana Gallery/ Founder FFPG) and the support of artists, business owners and volunteers.
    In 2015, First Friday PG became a monthly event thanks to a partnership with PG Art Center and PG Chamber of Commerce. In 2015, First Friday PG was given a grant from the Economic Development Commission as well as, the Business Improvement District and PG Chamber of Commerce, to assist with advertising and promotion of the ongoing events, this continues annually through today.
    When we band together we bring prosperity, culture and partnership to our community.
    The beauty and attraction for most business owners is that no memberships of any kind are required to participate. There is no cost unless participants want to be included in advertising and entertainment. We are making an event that is accessible to everyone downtown, no matter the type of shop, gallery, office, service or restaurant. The Pacific Grove Art Center is a major anchor for our ongoing First Friday events hosting 6 Gala Openings and 6 Gallery Nights on First Fridays.
    During the Spring and Summer months we see attendance numbers soar close to 2,500 people downtown during the Gala Opening nights of the PG Art Center. The goal of First Friday PG is to bring positive energy and business to the City of Pacific Grove and with attendance numbers as great as 2,500 people, we are headed in the right direction.
    One of the major goals for First Friday PG is to grow the number of participants and attendees to the event. Adrianne Jonson for the last 10+ years, has been responsible for all aspects of these events: contacting businesses, poster design, pick-up and part-time distribution of posters to participating businesses, social media, e-mail, press releases, newspaper ads, etc.
    The next time you are planning on a visit consider planning it around First Friday!
    Our event happens February-December on the First Friday of every month, rain or shine 6:00-9:00 pm.
