As part of their ‘First Fridays’ initiative, the twelve participating galleries in Hermanus have come up with a novel idea.  For the December 05 ‘First Fridays Artwalk’ the 12 galleries will be hosting a special event.

Night of 1000 Drawings is based on the concept that we should all enjoy the indulgence of purchasing artwork – even if it is modest in terms of size. Galleries have sourced paintings, drawings, sketches, illustrations, prints or doodles; on paper, card or board; in oils, watercolours, pastels, inks, pencil or charcoal; of landscapes, seascapes, portraits, abstracts or still lifes. The only restrictions were that they must be an A5 size and the artists must be willing to donate them.

All the collected artworks will be distributed between the galleries and on the evening of the event, they will be displayed and available for purchase – at R100 each. All the proceeds from the sales of these artworks will be divided between three Hermanus charities – Overstrand Hospice, Whale Coast Conservation and HEAP School in the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley. Don’t miss this special, worthwhile and exciting HFFA happening

Hermanus First Friday’s Artwalk – every first Friday of the month 5pm – 9pm – Art Walk our Town
