This weekend, the Greater Westhampton Chamber of Commerce hosts the annual Mary O. Fritchie Juried Fine Arts and Crafts Show on the Great Lawn (corner of Potunk Lane and Main Street in Westhampton Beach). The show will be held rain or shine on Saturday and Sunday, August 7 and 8, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
The summer art show will feature more than 65 artists who specialize in oils, acrylics, pastels, watercolors, mixed media, wood and metal sculpture, and photography. All featured artists are chosen through a competitive selection process.
âWe are proud to once again host a first-rate art show that showcases the talents of a variety of exceptional artists,â said chamber president Ari Goodman.
The show, now in its 48th year, began informally in the 1950s and was taken over in 1972 by the Chamber of Commerce, which named the event for then-chamber director Mary O. Fritchie. It has since grown and become a highly respected Hamptons art show that provides scholarship funding to graduating Westhampton Beach High School seniors who display a talent in the fine arts.
