Virginia's historic seaport, Olde Towne Portsmouth is the place to be this weekend as we host the 44th Annual Seawall Art Show with some 90+ juried artists participating. As in previous years, expect to find a little of everything, from wood carving to oil paintings, handwoven clothing to art glass, fine jewelry to pottery, and more.
With more than 30 years experience showcasing juried fine arts and fine crafts on the Portsmouth waterfront, the Seawall Art Show draws large crowds of art buyers to this prestigious event. With the assistance of the Portsmouth Museum and Fine Arts Commission, it is an all volunteer run show. Show proceeds always go to support the arts in Portsmouth.
|The Seawall Art Show begins at the High Street basin (Ferry Landing)|
Aside from works for sale, the show also features a student art show, entertainment, and a selection of food vendors too. Artists vie for thousands of dollars in awards gathered from exhibitor fees. The show is run by volunteers, and is supported by the Portsmouth Museum and Fine Arts Commission
Admission to the show is FREE. Street and city garage parking is also free on the weekends.
Best parking is the Water Street garage (on Water Street just off High at the riverfront) and the Middle Street garage (behind the Virginia Sports Hall of Fame and Museum).
