All New! Artisan Pop-Up Series Comes to GAC this Summer


Guilford, CT —Don't miss Guilford Art Center’s exciting new Summer Artisan Pop-Up Series featuring fine craft artists in an array of media, including ceramics, jewelry, wood, leather, glass, fiber and more! Pop-up shows will be held on the Guilford Art Center campus on May 29, June 5 and 19, July 10 and 24 and August 7. Saturdays from 10:00am-4:00pm. Admission is free and open to the community.


While the Center was unable to host Craft Expo this year, the shoreline community can still support many artists who would normally participate, as well as other local talents. “It’s so important to continue our support of craft artists, especially during this difficult time where many events have been cancelled” says Maureen Belden, GAC Executive Director. “We are thrilled to offer our Craft Expo artists and other local makers an opportunity to connect in-person with the shoreline audience of shoppers and art enthusiasts this summer. We hope people will stop by, meet the artists, and support their work.”
