ART AT THE RIVER, will return to Riverwalk Landing in Historic Yorktown on Sunday, May 15, 2022 for the Ninth Annual Juried Art Show from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thirty-seven captivating artists were carefully selected for this exhibition which will feature everything from fused glass to handcrafted copper pieces, from captivating watercolors to breathtaking photography, and much more.

Juried Art Show prizes valued at more than $3,000 will be awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places in 2-D, 3-D, and photography, as well as Honorable Mentions. The highly coveted Susan H. Powell Best in Show Award is in memory of the founder of the Art at the River Juried Art Show. Susan was a dedicated volunteer who enriched many lives by promoting the arts not just in Yorktown, but across the Peninsula. A crowd favorite People’s Choice Award winner will receive a $100 check.

Back by popular demand—live demonstrations from the Tidewater Turners of Virginia! The wood turners will explain more about their tools and techniques as people of all ages watch them make a variety of objects, including spinning tops that younger visitors get to take home as souvenirs.

Food and beverages will be available for purchase throughout the day from Coastal Thirst. All Historic Yorktown restaurants will be open. The Hampton Roads Winery is offering wine tastings with the option to buy a bottle. The Fifes and Drums of York Town are scheduled to open the show at 10 a.m., with Audio Portrait taking the stage from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
