Art in Action

Step under the stately portico,up the foyer stairs and into the halls of the 1921 Onancock School to find a hive of artistic endeavors behind the doors of old classrooms of yesteryear. Our resident tenants include uber-talented artists, painting in many mediums, several potters and carvers, jewelry designers, a landscape architect, and writers. Most of the artist studios are working studios, so it's always a good thing to connect first to be sure they are available. Learn all about our residents.


Featured Artist

Elizabeth Hunt


It is with heavy hearts that we say goodbye to Elizabeth who passed away on September 15, 2018. Elizabeth was an extraordinary artist and potter, an exceptional teacher of her craft, a brilliant woman, and had such a big heart. As one of our original resident artists here at HOS, she will be missed by this community and the larger community of artists and friends whose lives she touched. Rest in peace, Elizabeth.
