Seawall Art Show
Saturday: 10am-6:pm, Sunday: 10am-5pm
*NEW LOCATION THIS YEAR: Located on High Street between Crawford Street and Court Street.
If you want to find that one-of-a-kind gift for someone special, VA's historic Olde Towne is the place to be August 26th and 27th. High Street will be hosting the 47th Annual Seawall Art Show, with some 75+ juried artists. 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.
Admission to the show is free, as is the street parking on the weekend.
Aside from works for sale by nearly 75 artists, the show also features a student art show, entertainment, and food. 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.
