Newburyport Art Association
For more than 70 years, the Newburyport Art Association has been nurturing and promoting the work of local artists from traditional landscape painters to printmakers, sculptors, and digital artists. Today, its three galleries host rotating exhibitions including member works, thematic shows by artists across the region, and individual exhibits by notable artists, all united by their quality and depth. When you’re done indoors, complete your visit with a stroll through the Range Light Sculpture Garden.
