About Art ‘Round Town

Portsmouth art galleries celebrate this “inspired, intimate urban community with big city style” by presenting Art ‘Round Town Gallery Walk the first Friday of every month from 5-8pm year round. Portsmouth Historical Society participates in this wonderful event during its open months: from April – December. And as with many of the galleries in town, it uses the monthly event to launch new exhibitions and related programming. Art ‘Round Town fulfills our mission of helping people discover Portsmouth history, arts and culture. Coming up this year:
