The Greater Westhampton Chamber of Commerce will host its 47th annual Mary O. Fritchie Outdoor Juried Fine Art Show on Westhampton Beach’s Great Lawn during the first weekend of August.

The valued summer art show will feature more than 65 artists this year who specialize in various art forms including oils, acrylics, pastels, watercolors, mixed media, wood and metal sculpture and photography. In order to get into the show, the artists must go through a competitive and selective process. Ari Goodman, the chamber president, called the event a “first-rate art show” in a press release.

The art show began in the 1950s, officially becoming a chamber of commerce event in 1972, when the show was renamed after then-chamber director Mary Ocame Fritchie. Over the years, the show has grown in size and respect. In honor of Ms. Fritchie, the chamber provides scholarships to graduating Westhampton Beach High School seniors who display talents in the fine arts.

The event will be held on Saturday, August 3, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday, August 4, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the Great Lawn, located on the corner of Potunk Lane and Main Street. The show will be held rain or shine. More information is available on
