The Newburyport Art Association has launched its 2021 Summer Arts Market in the Range Lights Community Sculpture Garden on Sundays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Summer Arts Market is an outdoor pop-up event for local artists to sell their work and engage with the community. This space will be a showcase of unique and handcrafted works for purchase, with the goal of uniting art lovers and art makers in the beautiful outdoor sculpture garden along the rail trail.
