Art Show and Sale

The Nansemond-Suffolk Academy Art Show and Sale attracts artists and art connoisseurs throughout Hampton Roads. The 10-day show takes place the last week in January through the first week in February.
Featuring original artwork from over 150 local and regional artists, there are affordable options for everyone - from fine art, handcrafted jewelry and pottery to glass art, sculptures and more. Admission is free, and the community is welcome. Proceeds from the Art Show and Sale support Nansemond-Suffolk Academy’s visual and performing arts programs. The show also exposes our students to career opportunities in the arts and inspires them to explore their own creative abilities.
The 38th annual Art Show and Sale is scheduled for 2024! We look forward to seeing you at the show!

Contemporary painter Carson Overstreet grew up in the small town of Bedford, Virginia in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Inspired by the southern landscape and her own artistic family upbringing, Carson was always artistically inclined. Her current focus is the creation of landscapes and floral paintings, though she is exploring figurative work again. Many of her paintings, whether muted or saturated with color, focus on a strong light source, which plays out on the canvas through color and shadows. Another component of Carson’s unique aesthetic is her ability to capture the movement and mystery of clouds and often their reflection in water, which serves as a recurring motif in her work and breathes life into her landscapes.
