The Wickford Art Association is proud to be the promoter of the 52nd Wickford Art Festival. This juried fine art festival features over 200 artists from New England, the US and beyond, converging on coastal Wickford, RI annually to exhibit and sell their beautiful paintings, drawings, sculptures, photography, etchings and more. Set on the streets of historic Wickford Village, artists and visitors both enjoy the outdoor festival with musicians adding to the creative atmosphere. Quaint shops and classic homes line the streets as visitors stroll through the seaside village, meeting the artists and seeking out exceptional artwork to purchase and admire. Wickford is a "walking friendly" village that makes it easy for families, elderly and handicapped persons to enjoy the festival. Wickford is a very dog-friendly community but please consider the day’s temperature & humidity, possibly hot sidewalks and large crowds if bringing Spot along. Rhode Island is the first state in the nation to go tax-free on the sale of fine art! This is great news for Wickford Art Festival artists who will not have to worry about submitting sales taxes on original or limited edition artwork sold at the Festival and for art lovers who now will not pay a sales tax on most purchases. (Tax-free exemption is available to local and out of state artists but certain restrictions apply.) Rhode Island is working towards becoming the ultimate creative community: the “State of the Arts”! Please join us this year as an exhibiting artist or as a visitor. Wickford Village is located in North Kingstown, RI just 20 minutes from Newport and easy driving distance from Providence, CT and MA. Situated on Narragansett Bay, scenic Wickford is easy to reach via major highways, bus, Amtrak, and the nearby airports (TF Green, Quonset and Westerly).
