The Newburyport Gallery Walk was organized in 2002 by a core group of about 15 independently-owned, local art galleries. Our first Gallery Walk was in March 2003. We all knew Newburyport had a long and rich tradition in the arts and was a strong arts destination already, so it was only natural to begin one here to promote the artists we represent. Each year, the galleries of Newburyport host two to four ArtWalk events which are self-guided mostly walking tours of the Newburyport art galleries. Most ArtWalk events will include artist demonstrations or openings of new works by gallery artists, etc. along with light refreshments. It's a wonderful way to enjoy visiting the varied galleries in the city! Enjoy!
