The annual Newburyport ArtWalk takes place in historic downtown Newburyport and includes painting and jewelry demonstrations, artist question and answer sessions, live music, food and drink as well as other activities for the whole family.
The ArtWalk is a self guided tour of Newburyport galleries that can be done at any time of the year.
During ArtWalk Special Event Days, held four times a year, the Newburyport Artists and the Newburyport Art Association invite you to enjoy special gallery themes, artist receptions, light refreshments, new works of art at destinations all within walking distance around town.
For a self-guided tour, start at any gallery, pick up a map or download it here, and continue to the other galleries.
For a free guided tour, gather at Market Square in front of the Firehouse Center for the Arts at 3PM for a 1 hour walking tour of outdoor sculpture along the waterfront, the brick-paved Inn Street Market Place, and galleries and studios in some of the city’s architectural gems.
Music and refreshments is provided at many galleries.
