Treasures from the Museum
This year, sales of “Treasures from the Museum” will benefit the Newport Art Museums’ growing collection. The Museum is home to over 2700 paintings, drawings, photographs, prints, and sculptures. Proceeds from the sale of “Treasures” will be used toward acquiring new works of art and caring for the works the Museum currently owns. The “Treasures from the Museum” are works of art that were given to the Museum to auction in order to benefit the Museum.
This year, the “Treasures” include works by some wonderful printmakers David Budd, Michael Knigin, Marion Kenyon-Jones, and Edvins Strautmanis.

This year, Wet Paint ² introduces a new theme – the SQUARE!
• All artist submissions will be confined to 12” x 12” art boards for adults, 8” x 8” art boards for children, which can be used as a canvas, frame or base. Artists may use their own 12” x 12” panel – submissions can not exceed these dimensions. No frames, please.
• FREE art boards may be picked up at the Museum, and each artist may submit up to two artworks in any medium – drawing, painting, photography, sculpture, or?
In the spirit of “Wet Paint”, consider submitting art created “en plein air”!
• 100% of the artwork sales will be donated to the Museum.
Participating artists will receive a complimentary year-long Membership, recognition on social media, and acknowledgment on our website.
