For 40 years there has been the Art on Bartlet Mall painting show the first weekend of Yankee Homecoming. This year 60 artists again will be showing all media of work including a few hand-pulled printing artists. The artists are from Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, and even New Jersey. There are award winners in over half of the participants.
Newburyport has supported this show with great enthusiasm and repeated purchases of art work. The show is July 31st and August 1st, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm on the corner of High Street and Pond Street . The 2nd day of the show is part of the greater festivities of Old Fashion Sunday. The fees from the artists go directly to Yankee Homecoming. The show is free to the public.
