Call for Artists: 52nd Annual Ocean View Art Show

October 11 & 12

Norfolk, Virginia 

Ocean View Beach Park
100+ Artists
Deadline:  September 11

Kick off "Visual Arts Week in Norfolk" with the Ocean View Art Show. 

The City of Norfolk has recognized the importance of art, and of local art events.  They have proclaimed October 11-19 as "Visual Arts Week in Norfolk":

  • The 52nd Annual Ocean View Art Show kicks off the week  
  • joined by the Colonial Place/Riverview Art Walk on October 12
  • and the Stockley Gardens Fall Art show October 18 & 19.   
  • Mid-week events will take place throughout the city celebrating the Visual Arts.

The Chesapeake Bay Art Association (CBAA) is celebrating its 52nd year of hosting the Art Show.  Enjoy the friendly, relaxed nature of the show, along the beautiful Chesapeake Bay beach.  Our show features a high quality of art with a wide variety of styles and tastes in oil, watercolor, jewelry, pastel, charcoal, pencil, pen and ink, photography, glass, wood, sculpture and more.  Cash and other awards for the artists will total over $2,000.

The show features a Student Tent where 2013 saw over 60 local students displaying and selling their work. The show is free for middle and high school students, the work is judged, and awards are given to the students.  In addition an excellent cast of local music acts will fill the stage, and delicious smells from our local food vendors will fill the air.

The Ocean View Art show is one of the oldest art shows in Virginia and is put on by the member artists of the Chesapeake Bay Art Association.  The Art Association was formed in the Ocean View Area in 1961 and has been actively promoting and helping artists since its inception. Each year the Ocean View Art Show directs its proceeds to the John B. Tenney Memorial Scholarship Fund.  The Fund awards scholarships to area high school art students. 
Join us in the nice grassy park, with roomy spaces for each artist.

Just wanted to chime in that I have reviewed this show a couple of times.  It is informally but competently run, well advertised, and has the support of the mayor of Norfolk, which co-promotes this show and next week's fall Stockley Gardens show as "Art Week" in the city. If is worth strong consideration if you are within 100 miles or so.
