Why You Should Attend St. Augustine Art Walk
The St. Augustine Art Walk takes place on the first Friday of every month from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m. In total, there are around 30 participating galleries, each showcasing the works of local, national, and international artists. You’ll find almost every genre represented, from classical to more contemporary styles. The mediums seen are just as varied, with sculpture, jewelry, and wood. The best part of the evening is the chance to chat with some featured artists. You can find the perfect piece to add to your home or a collection and talk with the talent who made it! Some galleries even host a live painting session or an organized question and answer session with the artist. Check the First Friday Artwalk’s website to keep up-to-date on any special events.
