First Friday Art Walk
First Friday of each month at Plaza de la Constitucion
The next First Friday Art Walk is on February 2, 2018.
On the first Friday of every month, St. Augustine’s art galleries welcome visitors to browse the latest art exhibits and enjoy refreshments and live entertainment at some 30 participating galleries.
This cooperative open house showcases the amazing variety of artwork represented in St. Augustine’s fine art galleries, from contemporary to traditional and everything in between, created by local and national artists working in oils, pastels, photography, ceramics, wood, textiles, metal, and much more. For a full list of participating galleries, see the table below.
The galleries set out food and wine and other goodies on First Friday Art Walk, and many of the featured artists are on hand to answer questions about their work. The monthly event takes place on the first Friday of every month from 5 to 9 p.m., rain or shine, throughout St. Augustine's historic downtown area, from Aviles to King Streets, St. George Street and more -- even over the Bridge of Lions onto Anastasia Island and the beach.
