Starline Factory is home to “4th Fridays,” a regional art event that has become one of the most dynamic art attractions in the region.  The event is grounded in the idea of joining artists, buyers and art enthusiasts for a unique experience in an artistically crafted, historic location.  Held on the fourth Friday of the month from January through August, with a year-end finale in October, the event features a juried mixed art exhibit, photo contest, vendor artists, open Starline Factory artist studios as well as a featured solo artist exhibit.  In addition, the event offers live music and cash bars for beer, wine, coffee and mixed drinks on two levels.  Spend your 4th Friday strolling through an art event, nibble on delicious hors d’oeuvres, and listen to live music in a venue that is truly one-of-a-kind.  What could be better?
