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.

Weather and Seasons

          June 18th – July 13th

Think that sunny days are the best? Or do you prefer rainy days? Artists share their visual works based on the forces of nature in our daily lives and the seasons of the year. 

Weekly Happenings

A Weekly Challenge will be posted here each Wednesday. Share your results on the “Friends of Portsmouth Arts” Facebook page or email your art to friendsoftheguild@portsmoutharts.org for posting.
