2017 Art Show

2017 Annual Bath County Art Show

The Bath County Art Show is a great opportunity to bring artists and art lovers together each year. What people may not know, however, is that the art show is the Arts Association’s major fundraiser. All donations and proceeds from artwork sales are used to support community programs, award scholarships to students, sponsor visual and performing arts programs and art education in the Bath County Public Schools.
In 2016, two hundred and sixty-two artists, from six states, entered 715 works of art in the show.
