13th Annual Port Warwick Art & Sculpture Festival
presented by Virginia Health Services
Port Warwick’s Styron Square
3100 William Styron Square
Newport News, Virginia 23606
The festival will feature world class art, live music, food, dance and art demonstrations throughout the weekend. More than 90 talented artists locally and across the country will be in the square for this ever growing fine art festival. Art will include fiber, paintings, ceramics, mixed media, sculptures, glass, photography, drawing & graphics, furniture, wood, printmaking, and jewelry. The festival is a draw for art enthusiasts at any budget as many artists offer a wide range of price points to choose from.
Narissa Bond, Matt Thomas, The Jukes and much more live acoustic music will be featured. If a sculpture could speak, what would it say? Tidewater Dance Theater Inc. led by Debbi Evans Davidson, has taken on that task. The “Living Elements Project” seeks to take the story off the pedestal and onto the stage. The stories and routines presented were built around the Newport News Public Art Foundation sculptures that beautify our area with original music and choreography by local artists.
Returning is the “Young Collectors Tent,” where children can buy art at huge discounts, spending as little as $5 on art valued for as much as $300. A portion of the proceeds from this tent will help fund an emerging artist scholarship fund. Kids will get a chance to be artists with Make and Take pottery at the Starving Artist Studio and HIP tents.
As always, the festival will go on, rain or shine and there will be free parking. For more information visit www.pwartfest.org.
