Host an Artist
Artists make art, you can make lifelong friendships.
It is with a heavy heart that the Wickford Art Association has to cancel this year's show due to state-wide restrictions on large events happening this summer throughout Rhode Island.
This is the first time in 58 years the Wickford Art Festival has been cancelled. Produced annually by the Wickford Art Association, it serves as the organizations core fundraiser to support it's year long efforts of supporting young artists through it's scholarship program, as well as a full calendar year of offering exceptional educational arts programming and exhibits featuring local, national and international artists to our local seaside community.
Catch up on the news from last year's event with this great article in The Independent. If you're ready to sign up, fill out the survey forms on the page for either artists or hosts. We'll be in touch soon.
