April 1-3, 2016 First Friday Art Walk Weekend Event Post

Welcome to the April 2016 First Friday Art Walk Weekend blog post!


Every month we ask members of our Art Walk Etsy Team (AWETeam) to add a few items from their Etsy shop to our Team Event Post over on Etsy so we can help promote each others work through social media. Please hop on over and take a look to see what people are up to!

Etsy Treasuries played a large part of the startup of this team, and a few of our members are quite good at coming up with collaborations of team and non-team members.

Take a look at some of these AWETeam Treasuries.

Thanks for stopping by!
We hope you get out and see some local art in your area.

March 4-6, 2016 First Friday Art Walk Weekend

Happy First Friday!


We hope that you are able to get out and explore local art this weekend for First Friday as a lot of local galleries traditionally host an opening of month long new work on this evening.

Over on our AWETeam (Art Walk Etsy Team) we have a monthly "event" post where artists selling their work on Etsy can join our team and list items from their shop in this monthly thread.

Here is the link for the March Event Thread (check back through the month as people will add new items).

We have team members that like to make treasury collections on Etsy that help support team members and our event. Please click HERE to see the most recent ones.

December Art Walk Weekend Team Preparations

Every month our AWETeam (Art Walk Etsy Team) gears up for about a week ahead of the Art Walk online event.


It sometimes feels quite like a game trying to navigate how people can find artists, vintage sellers and quality suppliers of goods to make more handmade items.

Technology is constantly changing and people are viewing the world in different ways.

So in our latest attempt to get our team member shops seen, we are creating new square image Profile Photos that we upload to our public Team Facebook page.

There on our First Friday Art Walk Weekend FB page our members are asked to add a link to their Etsy shop and to their FB business page that is associated with their Etsy shop.

Even this can be tricky if you are copy and pasting, but the format is simply:
https://www.Etsy.com/shop/YOUR SHOP NAME

https://www.Facebook.com/YOUR BUSINESS PAGE

We are open to suggestions on how to better help promote our team members - and to get those team members participating every month and helping to share our team and promote this mostly event.

Please leave suggestions in the comments!

Our December team blog post will be live on Friday, December 4, 2015.

If you are an artist, vintage seller, or a supplier for making more handmade items, please join our team and add items to our event thread on our Etsy Team page AND public First Friday Art Walk Weekend Facebook page!
