About the show

Welcome artists and art lovers! The first annual Newmarket Juried Art Show has come & gone! Amazingly, 81 artists with 223 pieces of work sent in – pretty good for the First Annual, starting from no mailing list! From those, the jurists selected 47 pieces by 29 artists. It was a long day.
