Springtime is in full swing, and along with it comes April’s First Friday events. First Friday was founded in 2004 by three women devoted to the arts in Binghamton. Almost 20 years later, First Friday has expanded to what we know it is now. These events help keep the Binghamton art scene thriving and preserve the beauty of this town.

Here are some of the First Friday events happening in the month of April to go and check out.

April 7 to May 27 at Orazio Salati Studio & Gallery (204 State St.)

The Orazio Salati Studio & Gallery’s exhibit this month is called “Within: A Visual Introspective” by Sarrah Dibble-Camburn. Dibble-Camburn draws on abstract ideas and art inspired by horses, nature and happiness. In this exhibition, she will feature abstract paintings filled with the intuition that elevates the spirit and the amazing energy of life.

April 7 to May 29 at Cooperative Gallery 213 (213 State St.)

“Focus on Abortion: A Traveling Exhibit to Encourage Civil Discourse” is the Cooperative Gallery’s newest exhibit from guest artist Roslyn Banish, a San Francisco-based photographer who collected stories from different types of people across the United States. The exhibition is from another project, which is a book with interviews with people who have had experiences with abortion or have worked in medical abortion situations. Banish’s career began at the Institute of Design in Chicago, where she found her passion for photography. Over time, she wanted to include words from her subjects to accompany her photographs. In this combination, Banish hopes to give a full scope on human issues. Previous works include “Focus on Living: Portraits of Americans with HIV/AIDS” and “City Families: Chicago and London.”
