      Art has always been the raft onto which we climb to save our sanity. I don’t see a different purpose for it now. ~ Dorothea Tanning

       

      These words have more meaning than ever as we grapple with the new realities of self-isolating at home for the good of not just ourselves but our community.  In this vein, we are pleased to have come up with an online show to showcase the works in our annual Regional Juried Show to not just honor our artists but provide a little escape to someone who needs it.

      We are thrilled to announce the juror’s decisions of accepted works and awards for this prestigious show.   Thank you to our juror, Ruth Greene-McNally, Curator & Collections Manager, Ogunquit Museum of American Art for her hard work.  We thank all the artists for their submissions.  It takes a level of bravery to put your art and creativity into the world to be judged.  There were 512 submissions of which 149 were chosen, in 11 different media.   For the complete list, click here

      The show will be online May 1-30, with a process to purchase.
      Congratulations to all the accepted artists!

      New date announced…

      Saturday, September 26, 2020

      We are excited to announce that we have successfully rescheduled The 19th Annual Art Auction & Party to September 26, 2020. This fine art auction and party supports all programming including exhibitions, education, & community outreach.  This sell-out event has grown to become the NAA’s most important fundraiser and a popular evening for the Newburyport & surrounding community – great art, food, and company.

      More than ever- the community needs this event to celebrate art and the artists that create it. The stunning tent has been ordered, the theme has been updated to September by the Sea, and the delicious tasting menu has been planned. Over 80 artists have already donated artwork in all medias and price ranges.

      Please mark your calendars and plan to join us to celebrate the arts!
