Hermanus First Fridays Artwalk Friday 21 September 2018

Hermanus First Fridays Artwalk

First Fridays’ in Hermanus is our part of a worldwide initiative to make art and art galleries more accessible to the public. 

On the first Friday of every month, art galleries in the centre of Hermanus remain open until 8pm. Pick up a map at any gallery, stroll through the village, savour a glass of wine from one of our local vineyards and enjoy the astonishing range of art and fine craft on display.

The array of artworks available at the participating galleries ensures something for every palate. If you’re looking to spend R50 000 on an investment piece by a famous South African master, you’ll find it. If you’re searching for a delicate little porcelain bowl at R100, it’ll be waiting for you. If you want to see an artist at work, several of the galleries are also the home studios of resident painters and sculptors whose completed works are displayed. Ceramics, bronzes, glassware, jewellery, watercolors, African artefacts; more than enough to fill an hour or two with delight and indulgence.

Each month the artwalk has a different theme and on most months there are also fantastic prizes up for grabs. Don't forget to buy your First Friday walking stick from participating galleries.If you would like to view the theme of the month visit the Hermanus First Fridays Artwalk Facebook page.   Call 083 259 8869
