First Friday Gallery Walk — A number of exhibits are opening this week during First Friday Gallery Walk, held the First Friday of each month at galleries, cafes and art-friendly businesses in downtown Bend and the Old Mill District. Receptions take place from 5 to 8 or 9 p.m. Friday, depending on the space. Below are a few highlights:
