For February, Spokane's monthly arts showcase gets even bigger for the annual Winter Arts Tour, a weekend-long event that hosts even more gallery receptions, music, performances and other events than a typical First Friday. Don't let the cold weather keep you from getting out of the house to go meet local artists and see live performances across the downtown core and beyond. Most receptions for the Winter Arts Tour are Friday, Feb. 1, from 5-8 pm, unless otherwise noted below, where events are listed alphabetically by venue. Some Winter Arts Tour events run through the weekend, to Sun, Feb. 3. These listings were compiled from information provided by Winter Arts Tour organizer, Spokane Arts, and local artists and venues. Red stars denote Inlander staff picks; for additional information visit spokanearts.org. (CHEY SCOTT)
