Portside has a reputation for displaying both the works of established artists as well as the works of new and innovative young artists. Each year a judge educated in the visual arts selects artwork deemed best for the show. These pieces become part of the permanent Portside collection displayed in the Cygred Riley Gallery at Elm Pointe. Portside Arts Fair is open to all artists and craftspeople who exhibit work of original design and execution. Children have the opportunity to take part in crafts in our Children's booth while musicians entertain the artists and buyers.
