2016 ArtHop applicants: 

The Fresno Arts Council (FAC) is now accepting applications for new memberships for ArtHop, an arts and culture-focused event fueled by the passion and growing interest in the arts in Fresno.

ArtHop occurs every 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month, and is one of the most active and successful programs organized by the Arts Council, with over 60 participating venues in the 2015 year.

Art lovers and enthusiasts from all walks of life flock downtown Fresno and the Tower District on the first Thursday of each month, and the rest of ArtHop venues in the Fresno metro areas on third Thursdays, to meet and greet with artists and enjoy museums, studios, galleries and other venues open from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.

To become a member of ArtHop, please fill out our Arthop Agreement and Guidelines 2016 form which can be found by clicking on the blue link above, or attached below.  Mail or deliver these items upon completion to FAC, 1245 Van Ness, Fresno, CA 93721. The submission deadline is November 3, 2015.

The Annual ArtHop membership fee is $145, and participating artists must have a physical presence at the show of their work. Participating ArtHop venues will be displayed in our monthly Fresno Arts Council ArtHop brochure.
