The time has come – this weekend is the 16th Annual Portsmouth Holiday Arts Tour.

Explore the work of 14 of the Seacoast’s most talented artists during the original Portsmouth Holiday Arts Tour. The Tour takes place every year on the weekend before Thanksgiving. This year falls on November 18-20.

Artists on this free, self-guided tour continue to open their studios without an admission charge. Visit home studios to see new work, watch demonstrations and get a jump on your holiday shopping.

New to the Tour this year is oil painter Cheri Dennett. Cheri is a contemporary realist whose work spans a variety of subjects. Find Cheri’s home studio in Studio 5 on Lincoln Avenue.

The Tour is a great way to spend a few hours, the day, or the weekend exploring and supporting the work of these local artists who are sharing home studios with the community.

Artists reveal their work on Friday, November 18 from 5-8pm. The Tour continues during the day on Saturday, November 19 from 10am-5pm and Sunday, November 20 from 10am-5pm.

Download a Tour map or follow the route on google maps. Signs will be posted at each studio with numbers and balloons to help navigate the driving loop.
