Welcome to the Portsmouth Arts Guild
The Portsmouth Arts Guild is moving into the new normal. We are very happy with our Covid year innovations and look forward to continuing our virtual shows, virtual classes with instructors from distant places and the weekly challenges while resuming in-person classes and exhibits. Our classes, Plein Air workshops and In-Person Galleries are designed to safely connect artists, their art and the community.
Thank you for your continued support.
Call for Artists: Adorn the Guild Hall
And now for something completely different
Did you brave the cold this past winter painting Sunday Plein Air from your car? Or enjoy the warmth of your home studio painting a weekly challenge? Taken a class this year at the Guild Hall or enjoyed a Thursday Open Studio session? If so, we invite you to participate in the open Call for Artists who have painted with us in 2022 at any of the Portsmouth Arts Guild activities: Open Studio, Sunday Plein Air, Classes and Workshops and the Weekly Challenge. All are welcome.
We’ll adorn the walls of the Guild Hall this summer with artwork from these activities. No fee to enter your painting(s) for this exhibition. Inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org

Please bring your framed paintings – maximum of three – to any Sunday Plein Air or Thursday Open Studio session in the month of May.
