Call to Artists

Become a Shoreline ArtsTrail Member

The Shoreline ArtsTrail Open Studios Weekend is an annual event hosted each November, and an open Call to Artists occurs each Spring. Approximately 40 member artists who live and work in Branford, Guilford, and Madison show and sell their work in paintings, ceramics, glass, jewelry, sculpture, photography, textiles, paper and wood. Artists will be considered based on their mastery of methods and materials and professionalism. All considered art must be handmade by the artist. Potential members will be juried by a panel of artists for acceptance into the group.
