A wide array of artists will add a touch of creative flair to the Historic Yorktown waterfront on Sunday, May 5, when the Art at the River returns for its 11th annual event.  This juried art show at the waterfront features the work of more than 35 local artists. Guests can stroll down the Riverwalk from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. to marvel at the incredible one-of-a-kind work on display and for sale—paintings, pottery, jewelry, glass arts, photography, woodwork, metalwork, and much more!


These chosen creators are traveling to Yorktown from Richmond and the greater Tidewater area to participate in this popular community event.  Each artist draws their inspiration from a variety of sources, which are as intriguing as their artwork. Painters, photographers, potters, jewelers, and other creatives will display their work along Riverwalk Landing in hopes of taking home the People’s Choice Award.
