The 57th Annual Ocean View Art Show will be held October 12 -13, 2019 in the Ocean View neighborhood of Norfolk, VA.
As usual, the show will be located in Ocean View Beach Park at 100 W. Ocean View Avenue, in Norfolk, VA. Show times are 10 to 5 both Saturday and Sunday.
Visitors and residents of the Hampton Roads area may remember the show location as the home of “The Rocket” Roller Coaster and the Ocean View Amusement Park.
The 2019 Annual Ocean View Art Show will include painters, sculptors, jewelers, potters, and many more displaying their art work in the Ocean View Beach Park. Each artist will have work displayed and for sale in their booth. The show will also include food vendors, entertainment, and other attractions.
Once considered a small local art show, the Ocean View Art Show has grown into a major event for the region. Artists from the Hampton Roads area will be working side-by-side with artists from around Virginia and from several other states. Many of the artists are top award winners in art shows around the country.
One of the popular features of the Ocean View Art Show is the student tent where students from area Middle and High Schools are invited to display their work. There is no charge for the students, the work will be judged, and awards presented.
This is an excellent opportunity for students to experience the excitement of an Art Show, and to mingle with and learn from the area’s finest artists.
The Chesapeake Bay Art Association has held the Ocean View Art Show in Norfolk since 1962. Virginia’s oldest and largest artist run show, the event supports the art community through student scholarships.
