Intake Information

All are invited to enter your work in the Portsmouth Arts Guild

Show Us Your Dreams Art Show

Artists are invited to portray their dreams and nightmares.  A dream can be a visionary landscape of a perfect world, a flower, a day at the beach.  Or it can be a dark vision of chaos, storms and shadows.  Invoke your inner Surrealist or Dadaist.  Think outside of the ordinary and embrace the wondrous strange beauty and terrors of the world and the inner mind.


Please submit all artwork both in person and by email.
