New group shows will open at the Atlantic Gallery and at the Mermaid Café, both on Market St. Internationally celebrated sculptor Eva Russo will display her new work in the rotunda of City Hall.

Studio location maps will be available prior to the opening at businesses and public libraries , and on the days of the event at the Riverwalk. Riverwalk is located at the junction of Market St and Dock St in downtown Portsmouth.
