New Exhibits for First Friday Art Walk

St Augustine Bayfront

Lightner MuseumArt, Music and More!

This is going to be an exciting First Friday Art Walk in St. Augustine!   There is going to be a concert by Harpist Mary Jan Ballou, a St. Augustine resident and new exhibits will open in more than 20 area galleries from 5 to 9 pm.  As usual there are free trolley rides being offered throughout downtown St. Augustine to art walk participant locations.

Advice from Beach to River:

One stop along your journey should be Claude’s Chocolate; which is not offically “art,” but that is a debatable point. Disclaimer: Beach to River is firmly in the Chocolate IS Art corner.

Featured Exhibit

Beach to River’s Featured Exhibit this month is: “Florida Highwaymen.”  The gallery located in the courtyard area of the Lightner Museum will feature artist Al “Blood” Black displaying his “Florida Highwaymen” works.  The Highwaymen were a group of black artists who began a new style of painting in Florida more than 50 years ago. Black will be on hand to meet the public and discuss his art from 5 to 9 pm on Friday, Aug. 6 and will return on Saturday and Sunday Aug. 7-8.
