    Begun by Sam Sargent, an ‘enthusiastic gathering’ of twenty launched what would become the Newburyport Art Association nearly 70 years ago and the artistic evolution of our community has expanded into the downtown being designated as a State Cultural District by the Massachusetts Cultural Council.

    Whether you’re a collector, an art lover, a student or an artist, there has never been a better time to celebrate the arts and its artistic heritage in Newburyport!

    The free brochure/gallery guide can be picked up at any participating gallery, the Newburyport Chamber of Commerce, the passageway, by Valerie's Gallery, between State and Inn Street and at our ArtWalk Partners' locations.

    Fairy Gnome Discovery Walk

    The Fairy Gnome Discovery Walk is one of the most whimsical events in the state. This is an enchanting opportunity to explore an (almost) real fairy garden."

    A whimsical afternoon at Salisbury’s most beautiful farm, PETTENGILL FARM walk through lush gardens, an enchanted forest, and the serene marsh; it’s an event like no other.

    ABOUT THE EVENT
    Join us at our fifth annual Fairy Gnome Discovery Walk at Historic Pettengill Farm (circa 1792). The gems of the event are the near 200 Fairy and Gnome Homes peppered throughout a 1 mile wooded path that leads to the salt marsh and back. Homes are created by very talented professionals, families, school children, and local businesses.

    A LITTLE BIT MORE
    It's true, we have awesome FREE crafts and activities. We have all day live music, improv theater performances, and other entertainment. Yes - we have fun places to shop and souvenirs priced to please. We anticipate hundreds of meticulously created Fairy and Gnome homes peppered throughout the most magical woods with a treat half way that will take your breath away, that only our beautiful seaside town could offer. Oh and of course, yummy food trucks. But what you can't see, is what we are most proud of. The magic that is ignited within the youngest to the oldest. Kids crouching in the woods discovering Fairy and Gnome homes - you'll hear the squeals and see the sparkle in their eyes when they think they have spotted one. It's the folks dancing to their favorite tunes in a sea of bubbles, or enjoying the quietness of the farm while watching the stillness of the pond. Not a care in the world or an ear for the "static" that exists outside of this magical event.
    Tickets are on sale now and we offer FREE admission to home creators. We hope you join us! www.FairyGnomeWalk.weebly.com

We will present the two composer’s best loved vocal works: selections from the Old American Songs by Aaron Copland and Chichester Psalms by Leonard Bernstein. Paired with these works will be the New England Premiere of Utah composer, Andrew Maxfield’s Celebrating Wendell Berry in Music, which, through Berry’s poetry, expresses an appreciation of the land upon which we live, and emphasizes the resilience of the American spirit.

    Cooking Class: Fearless Fish
    We are pleased to announce a partnership with Christopher Kimball’s Milk Street as of September 2018. This is a demonstration-based iteration of Fearless Fish.

    Class Description:

    Packed with protein, fast-cooking and low in fat (except the good, omega-3 kind), fish has a lot going for it. Except popularity. When it comes to home cooking, we either give fish a miss or, if we do try it, end up with rubbery shrimp or bland lumps of white or pink meat that never turn out quite right—too dry or too mushy, or, worst of all, tasting of nothing in particular.

    In this class, we treat fish with the respect it gets in other parts of the world. We cook delicate white fish in gentle heat to preserve moistness and tenderness. We use sharp aromatics and bold spices to provide a punchy counterpoint to its essential mildness. We do a one-sided sear to boost texture and flavor without running the risk of overcooking. And we get simmering right, adding bold flavor to banish any blandness and finding lighter alternatives to heavy cream.

    Recipes include:

    Brazilian Fish Stew (Moqueca)

    Spicy Korean-Style Fish Stew

    Mexican Shrimp in Garlic Sauce

    Fish Steamed with Sichuan Chili Bean Paste and Shiitake Mushrooms

    Please note: This is not a hands-on class. In this class you will watch and interact as the instructor prepares three dishes using a variety of strategies and techniques. You will sample from generous tasting portions of the demonstrated dishes. Most classes can be made Gluten-Free if requested in advance. Please notify us of any food restrictions or allergies in advance by emailing info@portplums.com.

    What could be better than sipping a cold, freshly brewed craft beer, surrounded by friends, with that rejuvenating feeling of Spring?

    The fact that you could be doing it while raising awareness and funds directed towards making the Bartlet Mall playground the first inclusive playground in Newburyport. Yes- I said first, but not only.

    Our goal moving forward is to see every playground in Newburyport be inclusive. When each playground gets updated/renovated, we strive to see that it is renovated with our special children in mind. We know that they need fresh air, play, and a feeling of camaraderie as much as our able-bodied kids.

    Doors open at 6:15pm, class begins promptly at 6:30pm and runs until approximately 8:30pm. 

    This demonstration-based class is designed to teach beginner cooks how to prepare a fresh and delicious home-cooked meal including fresh fish (swordfish, tuna, and/or salmon) from FISH, a seasonal vegetable, and couscous. Complimentary beer and wine will be offered. Class instructor, Pete, will guide you so you feel prepared to impress your loved one on your next date night!

    Pete Bendoris of NorShor Nosh is a self-taught accomplished home cook. From his humble beginnings of eating his Mom’s horrible meatloaf and canned peas, Pete took matters into his own hands to make great, simple home cooked meals. Pete cooks for his family at least three nights a week and he likes to take on challenges when time allows. Pete is also a homebrewer, cidermaker, gardener, wine enthusiast and is slowly adding charcuterie to his repertoire. Pete’s mantra is “Life is too short to eat bad meals”. Pete recently launched his Instagram initiative and YouTube Channel to help others who have the same desire to cook but don’t have the knowledge or confidence to prepare flavorful, simple meals at home. 

    Please note: This is not a hands-on class. In this class you will watch and interact as the instructor prepares several dishes using a variety of strategies and techniques. You will sample from generous tasting portions of the demonstrated dishes.
