Art Show & Sale

The Nansemond-Suffolk Academy Art Show and Sale attracts artists and art connoisseurs throughout Hampton Roads. The show takes place the last week in January through the first week in February. Admission is free, and the community is welcome. The NSA Art Show and Sale boasts a wonderful diversity of media from over 150 artists, including paintings and multimedia works of art. Prices range from $25 to $7,000. While the works of art beautifully adorn the Lower School hallways, teachers also use the Art Show and Sale as an opportunity to incorporate the art and artists’ displays into their curriculum.
