Hermanus First Fridays’ (HFF) October Artwalk on Friday evening once again saw art lovers taking to the streets of the CBD to stroll from gallery to gallery while mingling and admiring the diverse offering of paintings, sculpture, ceramics, jewellery and photography on display.

Gallery owner Jozua Rossouw (centre) with artists Corné Eksteen and Nicole Pletts, whose joint exhibition ‘Passage’ opened at SPACE on Friday 4 October.

The Artwalk coincided with the opening of a new exhibition entitled ‘Passage’ at Rossouw Modern’s SPACE Gallery, featuring works by Nicole Pletts and Corné Eksteen. Both artists were present at the opening and guests were able to engage with them and discuss their work. The exhibition will run until 22 October.

The Hermanus Photographic Society, which joined HFF some months ago, again exhibited a selection of this month’s winning photographs by its members at their pop-up gallery at Foto First. The society, which is affiliated to the Photographic Society of South Africa (PSSA) is proud to be hosting a photographic exhibition at the Sanlam Art Gallery in Bellville on Friday 25 October.

The artistic talent of our town’s youngsters was also on display on Friday evening at Hermanus High School, where the Grade 12 students of the Hermanus Visual Art & Design Centre (from Hermanus High, Northcliff House College and Overberg High) exhibited their final works of the year in the school hall. Their pieces included paintings, drawings, sculptures, jewellery, textiles and more.

The next HFF Artwalk will be on Friday evening 1 November, from 17:00 – 20:00. Twenty galleries in the CBD take part in the Artwalk every month.
