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 after 17:00 until 20:00. 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 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, watercolours, African artefacts; more than enough to fill an hour or two with delight and indulgence.
Each month the Hermanus First Friday 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.
