Here’s a list of Lancaster City venues that I believe will be showing some photographs this First Friday, May 2nd:

Senior Show & Celebration: PCA&D’s class of 2014 will present their new and individually-crafted thesis projects during the Senior Show & Celebration on Friday, May 2 from 5 – 8 p.m. A family-only preview will be held from 4 – 5 p.m. Two thousand art lovers packed PCA&D last year to experience the event — and our 2014 edition will again be Lancaster’s largest one-day gallery event by a single organization. The Senior Show & Celebration is free and open to the public so you can experience PCA&D’s promise: our graduates are strong thinkers, strong makers, and strong communicators, and they are truly prepared for a life in art.

And here are a couple of events aligned with Lancaster’s Spring ArtWalk on Saturday, May 3rd, and Sunday, May 4th:
