First Fridays is a worldwide initiative to bring art and art galleries to the public. It's already a feature in major cities in South Africa, like Cape Town and Johannesburg. Hermanus, an hour-and-a-half's drive up the coast from Cape Town, has one of its own too.

On the First Friday of every month, Hermanus' art galleries in the centre of town stay open until 8pm so that visitors and locals alike can stroll the village, sip on a glass of local wine (literally vineyards from the Hemel en Aarde Valley and Walker Bay wine routes)and enjoy the range of fine art and art that equates to around 300 artists, 4000 paintings, and 200 ceramics and sculptures.

Expect a range of art from as little as R100 for a porcelain bowl to R50 000 for that famous South African investment piece.

Many of the galleries have resident artists at work in their studios, so that an hour or two is easily whiled away in the company of watercolours, oils and objet d'art.

By August 2016, seventeen galleries had joined First Fridays. Hermanus has a two month winter hiatus (June and July), but the art walk picks up again in August, just in time for the Whale Festival.

ps: sometimes there is a lucky draw for an art piece.
