This weekend we went to the 58th Annual Boardwalk Art Show at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront. This four-day festival attracts more than 200,000 visitors, and all the profits go to support our local contemporary art museum. The Boardwalk Art Show is ranked in the top third of fine art shows on the Eastern Seaboard.
Last year when it was art show time, I had just broken my foot the week before and had to be pushed along the Boardwalk in a wheelchair. This time, I got to enjoy the show on my own two feet. The day couldn’t have been more beautiful, and I can’t think of a more stunning backdrop for an art show than the Atlantic Ocean. Here is a sampling of some of the photos I took. Enjoy.
Beautiful! I love the glass pieces.
Me, too, Life, but they were so expensive.
They have quite a variety of things. We’ve never been to one down there. Did you buy anything to celebrate the anniversary of The Boot?
Darn, I should have thought of that, Patti. It would have been a good excuse.
We have a large art festival here in Laguna Beach, Muri and I were wanderinng around one day and there was a very funny sign hanging among the crafts. The artist, probably tired of hearing people say, I could do that,” had put up a sing that said, “Yes, but will you ?”
Great sign, Bud! Laguna Beach sounds like another wonderful venue for an art show.
It must be a simply fabulous art show. I love the glass and the pottery and and and……. I would have to leave my wallet at home too. Beautiful shots!
Everything looks beautiful with the ocean as a backdrop, Dor. It was a perfect day for the art show.
I’d be temped… good to know everything was Expensive. Beautiful beach!
Thanks, Amy. Hope you will see it in person someday.
VB is on my list…
Beautiful, and the boardwalk is such a nice area to walk and enjoy the ocean. The art show looks like fun, glad you were under your ‘own power’ this year. Thanks for the post! DAF
And I left my money at home so I wasn’t tempted, DAF.
Beautiful – especially the glass against the vivid water. Reminds me I need to get out to a good art show this summer.
It’s good to support the arts, Peg, as so much of their funding is dwindling.
I think this is the first time Patty has gone to the show without coming home with a “trinket.” (A very expensive trinket).
I don’t know how she could contain herself. Everything was so beautiful. Expensive, though.
Looks like a beautiful day with wonderful art work! Were you wearing your birkenstocks?
Haha, Carol. No, I’m still breaking them in.
