Every month Hermanus becomes a cultural buzz. Streets filled with locals and tourists appreciating the pieces on display, enjoying a glass of wine and catching up with each other. First Fridays’ in Hermanus is our part of a worldwide initiative. Making art and art galleries more accessible to the public. Eleven Hermanus art galleries participate in Frist Fridays. Galleries are open until 8pm.

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’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. Some of the galleries are the home studios of resident painters and sculptors. See the artists at work. Ceramics, bronzes, glassware, jewellery, watercolours, African artefacts. You will easily be able to fill up an hour or two with delight and indulgence.
