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:
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.
