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 more than 25 participating galleries. For lovers of local art and culture, the First Friday Artwalk is a great way to celebrate both the start of a new month and the end of a long week. Spend your time hopping from gallery to gallery in the downtown area or jump on a complimentary shuttle and check out the galleries on the beach. But wherever you decide to spend your time, here’s what’s new at the December 7, 2018 First Friday Artwalk.

Artist Talk with Sam Kates at Butterfield Garage Art Gallery
Sam Kates is a painter of coastal scenes reminiscent of old Florida. He describes his current style and techniques as “painterly realism,” full of detail to document his subjects but very dependent on light and shadows that give his works extraordinary depth and definition. The December Artwalk will be an opportunity to meet the artist hear the behind-the-scenes view of his inspiration and processes.

Do your holiday shopping on the Boulevard at The Gallery Group! Mingle, shop, and enjoy some wine. Original art, prints, cards, jewelry, and lots of fun gifts are ready to be put under the tree. If you spend over $100, you’ll get a free gift!
