    Celebrate Art! Is a holiday “show-within-the-show” happening in tandem with The Power of Art.




    The centerpiece of Celebrate Art! will be a Christmas tree hung with 100 miniature canvases created by NAA artists. NAA announces a call for 3”x3” canvases which the NAA will provide to artists. All mediums accepted. These original holiday treasures will be offered for sale at the NAA for $28, and include a card identifying the artist. NAA will receive 35%. This is a great way to introduce your artwork to new patrons!


    To comply with Mass Government Covid regulations, entries/requests for canvases must be submitted online at www.newburyportart.org. You will find guidance for online submission here. Note: we have 100 blank canvases to be distributed on a first come, first serve basis. Limit: two canvases per member

    Keep Art Accessible For All! Donate to NAA New Dawn Capital Campaign

    In operation since 1948, the NAA is a corner-stone of the greater Newburyport vibrant arts scene with over 600 artists and members from around the region.  Our mission includes art exhibitions, arts education, and community outreach, especially to students and adults with disabilities, to keep the arts accessible for all.

    When the COVID-19 crisis forced us to close our doors from March to October, there was a void felt in both art and community. Thanks to the efforts of the NAA Board and our committed supporters, we re-opened to the public on November 6th with The Power of Art: Members Open Show, featuring stunning work by over 90 of our member artists.

    As we approach the end of the year and the final weeks of our “NAA New Dawn” campaign, please consider making a donation to help us meet our $50,000 goal to cover operating expenses. With your generosity, we will be able to continue our vital work for many years to come. Thank you!  To Donate,  click Count Me In!

    The Newburyport Art Association is a 501(c )(3) non-profit organization.
