St. Augustine

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.

Many of the Galleries introduce their featured artist for the month and they are often on hand to answer questions about their work. Artwalk takes place throughout St. Augustine's historic downtown area, uptown and - even over the Bridge of Lions onto Anastasia Island and the beach.

Be sure to stop by and visit STA Marketplace favorites including High Tide Gallery Art and Gifts as well as W.B. Tatter Studio Gallery. W.B. Tatter Studio Gallery currently has a special exhibit, Dog Days of Summer, through which local artists pay homage to man's best friend in paint, jewelry, sculpture and many other mediums. While you’re there, don’t miss STA Marketplace favorite, Darla Donley’s pet portrait.
