Newbury Old Home Day


Call for EntriesIn celebration of our annual Newbury Old Home Day, the Town of Newbury will host an art exhibit featuring local artists.  We would like to invite you to display your artwork during this event. The exhibit may include paintings, photography, rug braiding, handmade baskets, pottery, woodworking, etc.   All pieces will be displayed in a public area with potential high foot traffic and combined with other events.  The exhibit will not be staffed.

All paintings and photography must be framed or gallery wrapped.

Demonstrations:  Artists displaying in the exhibit are invited to demonstrate their craft either outside the exhibit or inside depending on the nature of their craft.
