In its 68th year, this long-running art show is renowned for its “open invitation” to artists for this unique 3-day event. Professional artists, novice artists and every type of artist in between are all invited to display and sell their artwork in this once-a-year opportunity.

Artists are judged in nine categories: Oil Paints, Watercolors, Acrylic Paints, Drawing, Photography, 3D Sculpture, Mixed Media and Novice while also competing for Best in Show, First Place and Popular Vote, among others.

Are you looking for that “perfect artwork” for your home or office? All pieces in this show are for sale. Many of our previous art buyers expressed their enjoyment in browsing such a wide variety of styles, talents and prices.

Open for three days only, the exhibit is on display March 15-17, 2019 at the Dorothy Hart Community Center, 408 Canal Street in downtown Fredericksburg. Hours of the show are: Friday, March 15 at 10:00am – 8:00pm; Saturday, March 16 at 10:00am-8:00pm; Sunday, March 17 at 10:00am-4:00pm. Admission is free.
