Great Bay Art Show

Art of Great Bay 2024


Dear Artist,

Welcome back for the 18th annual Art of Great Bay show! We are excited to hold our show again in 2024, and look forward to admiring your work in person. We would appreciate your submission of an updated registration form by March 4 (pdf: 2024 Art of Great Bay Registration Form), as well as a $25 payment.  You may send a check to the Great Bay Stewards or use the PayPal link below:

The drop-off date and time for hanging submissions is Wednesday, April 3rd, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., or from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. Tabletop artists can come Thursday, April 4th, from noon to 2 p.m., or between 12 p.m. and 2 p.m. or Friday, April 5th, to set up their tables. Please inform us if there is a conflict with these times.

We also ask that at drop off you bring a detailed list of inventory, with price and medium, especially if you have small pieces such as jewelry.  This will expedite our check-in and sales processing. All hanging items must be ready to hang, fitted with wire; these items will be displayed on large standing panels. Please remember that all hanging works must fit onto a panel size of 30 inches wide by 48 inches high; works exceeding this space will not be able to be included. We also request that all pieces are original works, with the exception of photography that are numbered limited editions.  If you have previously participated in Art of Great Bay, please bring works not shown in past years.  All pieces must relate to the theme, “New England from the Mountains to the Sea: The People and Places You’ll Find Along the Way.” Please also do not leave behind any materials used to transport artwork at the show, as we cannot be held responsible for their security.

An opening reception for artists, sponsors, and Stewards supporters will be held Friday evening, April 5 from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., and the show will continue Saturday and Sunday, April 6th and 7th, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days. Artists do not need to be in attendance during the show but are encouraged to attend the Friday night reception; however, artists selling tabletop works will need to have representation the entire weekend. You will receive 70 percent of the proceeds from your sales, with 30 percent going to the Great Bay Stewards, a non-profit supporting the programs at the Discovery Center. We will also be grateful for a donation of a piece of your artwork for a raffle during the show.

The pick-up date and time for unsold artwork is Sunday, April 7th from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. or Monday, April 8th, 9 a.m.- noon. If these times do not work for your schedule, please contact Audrey Becker at
