What’s Happening: Seawall Art Show


If you’re looking to add unique décor to your home or want to find a one-of-a-kind gift for a loved one, you should make your way to the 48th Annual Seawall Art Show.

68 artists from across the U.S. will be right here, in Downtown Portsmouth. You will find a little bit of everything from wood carving to oil painting, handwoven clothing to art glass, fine jewelry, pottery and more.

Prizes will be handed out for the best in each category. You can also check out pieces from emerging artists at the student showcase.

“We have 40 students from 6th grade to 12th grade featuring their work in the showcase. You’ll see paintings, drawings, sculptures, you name it. These kids are incredibly talented. It’s great because they come out to the show and see firsthand what it takes to be a professional artist,” said organizer Linda Torres.

The Seawall Art Show is happening this upcoming Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 25 – 26. Admission is free and open to the public.
