BATH COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) — After being canceled by the coronavirus pandemic last year, the 56th annual Bath County Art Show is back in Hot Springs for the next week, featuring the works of more than 200 local and regional artists.

This show will take place at Valley Elementary School in Hot Springs from 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday, July 17 through Saturday, July 24, and then 10 a.m. to noon on Sunday, July 25.

“We are so excited to be doing this again,” said Mindy Brooks, president of the Bath County Art Association. “We’ve run this art show since 1965, and it’s really the longest running tradition in Bath County.”

There will be hundreds of works of art on display, from photography and pastels to watercolor and sculptures. Many of the artists are Bath County natives, making this a true community display.

“They’re always surprised at what we have because the place is full, the school is full of art,” said artist Patty Biederman. “We have sculptures, we have so much to see here, you could spend a full morning here.”

More than 600 pieces of art will be on display at the Bath County Art Show, with every piece up for sale.
