First Friday Artwalks from the Art Galleries in St. Augustine

Posted by: Alayna Oram in Uncategorized

St. Augustine has long had the reputation of being a quaint artist community – where talented artists using a variety of mediums, create and sell their work. Downtown is full of galleries and shops that proudly feature local art, glass, pottery, jewelry and more. The residents of St. Augustine and the surrounding areas happily support the local art community. This explains why the First Friday Artwalk is one of St. Augustine’s most popular cultural events.

On the first Friday of every month from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., over 20 galleries open their doors, display the latest exhibits, serve light refreshments and host live musicians. They invite everyone – the self-guided tour is free to all – to stroll from gallery to gallery and enjoy the evening, rain or shine. Attendees may choose to park at any of the participating galleries or they may take a complimentary shuttle service provided by St. Augustine Sightseeing Trains and Old Town Trolleys. The shuttles run on a continuous loop every 15 to 30 minutes. Featured artist include Beau Redmond, Trip Harrison and Sydney McKenna. Hope to see you on August 7 for the next First Friday Artwalk!
