Spokane's monthly arts showcase features gallery receptions, live music and a chance to meet local artists across the downtown core and beyond. February also celebrates Spokane Arts' annual Winter Arts Tour, an expanded showcase of artistic and cultural events across the city, including film, music, spoken word and interactive workshops. Some of these events are scheduled throughout the weekend. Receptions for most of this month's events are the evening of Friday, Feb. 7, unless otherwise noted below.

The following listings were compiled from information provided by Winter Arts Tour organizer Spokane Arts, First Friday organizer Downtown Spokane Partnership, and host venues/artists. Red stars denote Inlander staff picks. For additional information visit spokanearts.org, firstfridayspokane.org or the Inlander's online event calendar, at Inlander.com/events. (CHEY SCOTT)
