6th Annual Range Lights Sculpture Garden Exhibition 

September 11, 2021 - September 1, 2022

The Newburyport Art Association is excited to announce its 6th annual Range Lights Sculpture Garden Exhibition. The gallery is currently on the hunt for the next installment of sculptures to be on display between the dates of September 11, 2021 and September 1, 2022.  The sculpture garden is a focal point of the NAA , especially during warmer months, visited often by locals and tourists alike. We hope that with this new installment of work, the sculpture garden will continue to add value to the landscape of downtown Newburyport as a place of inspiration.



The show is open to all artists, NAA members and nonmembers, 18 years of age or older.
Although membership is not a requirement for entry, we invite you to consider becoming an NAA artist.
