2014 Ocean View Art Show

52nd Annual Ocean View Art Show
October 11-12, 2014
Ocean View Beach Park
Norfolk, Virginia

The 52nd Annual Ocean View Art Show is expecting 100 artists to have their work on display, and for sale, in Ocean View Beach Park.

The show will kick off Norfolk Visual Arts Week, with art related activities planned for the entire week.

The Ocean View Art Show is the oldest art show in Norfolk, and one of the oldest in Virginia. It is the only show that gives the proceeds to an art scholarship fund, helping our future artists with their school expenses.

The 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, pottery, and more. Show artists will be competing for over $2000 in awards.

A popular feature of the show is the Student Tent, where 2013 saw over 60 local students displaying and selling their work. The show is free for middle and high school students, their work is judged, and awards are given to the students.

The Ocean View Art Show includes live music, with local groups on stage in the Ocean View Beach Park. A wide range of food vendors will offer BBQ, hot dogs, kettle corn, and more on sale in the park.

The Ocean View Art Show is put on by the member artists of the Chesapeake Bay Art Association. Each year the Ocean View Art Show directs its proceeds to the John B. Tenney Memorial Scholarship Fund.
