The Nashua Area Artists Association presents the 58th Annual Greeley Park Art Show featuring outstanding artists from the Nashua area and across New England. The Greeley Park Art Show is a summer tradition in Nashua since the early 1950s, this show is in fact the oldest annual outdoor art show in New England.

There is plenty of parking and public transportation available.
Artists will be displaying their artwork in diverse mediums such as oils, acrylic, watercolors, pastels/drawing, mixed media, jewelry, photography and digital art. Works vary in price range from under $20 to over $1,000.
Saturday will feature the adult art competition for participating artist and Sunday will feature the student art competition. Young people from ages 6-18 are welcome to enter their best art work. All works will be on display after the judging.
Both days will offer a variety of other attractions, including George Parker-strolling musician, and Teresa Moler-puppet master. Robin Rapture will bring us more excitement when she introduces us to Hoopium on Sunday.
