Newburyport Art Association

What a night we had!  Thank you to all who came out to support us and the arts in Newburyport at our annual party and art auction.  We are so grateful!  A special thank you to our sponsors who help make it possible.. Institution for Savings, Matter Communications, Ipswich Bay Glass, ReMax on the River, Newburyport Development, Fruh Realty, and Eastern Bank Charitable Foundation.
A shout out to our Auction Chair Deb Pare, our fabulous auctioneers Buddy Kelley and Ryan Kelley, and the fabulous bartenders from The Paddle Inn.  They helped set the stage for a spectacular evening of art, wine, and fun!  This event just keeps getting better and better!
