On the first Friday of every month, starting on 3 October, the eleven art galleries in the centre of Hermanus will remain open until 20:00 for all to enjoy an evening walk through the galleries.
‘First Fridays’ in Hermanus is part of a worldwide initiative to make art and art galleries more accessible to the public.
Art lovers are invited to collect 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 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, five of the galleries house working studios of resident painters and sculptors, whose completed works are displayed.
Ceramics, bronzes, glassware, jewellery, watercolours, African artefacts; more than enough to fill an hour or two with delight and indulgence.
The participating galleries are Art Eye, Rossouw Modern, Originals Gallery, Bellini Gallery, Hermanus Art Circle, Pure South, Lembu, Walker Bay Gallery, Willie Botha Gallery, Gallery 19 and Art Thirst.
The future dates for Hermanus First Fridays Artwalk are on Friday 7 November, and Friday 5 December.
