Boardwalk Art Show

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.

King Neptune almost seems as if he's part of the show.

About Coming East

I am a writer, wife, mother, and grandmother who thinks you're never too old until you're dead. My inspiration is Grandma Moses who became a successful artist in her late 70's. If I don't do something pretty soon, though, I'll have to find someone older for inspiration.

    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?

    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 ?”

    Beautiful – especially the glass against the vivid water. Reminds me I need to get out to a good art show this summer.

    I think this is the first time Patty has gone to the show without coming home with a “trinket.” (A very expensive trinket).

  9. Looks like a beautiful day with wonderful art work! Were you wearing your birkenstocks?

Let me hear your thoughts. They are important to me.
