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.
