*New "Artistry" Sale Celebrates Handmade Crafts
Shop Re-opens for Holiday Season*
Guilford Art Center's beloved Shop of contemporary American crafts will reopen for the holiday season for its annual Artistry Holiday Sale of Fine Craft & Art, November 13, 2009 through January 3, 2010. One-of-a-kind, handmade crafts by scores of artists from across the country will be featured at this annual event.
Artistry is a particularly anticipated event this year, since it means the GAC Shop will be open once again for the season. "People are excited to come back to shop here, and to find unique, high-quality objects along the shoreline," says Bonita Roggow, Shop Manager. "We have a huge array of handmade objects that make great gifts and are alternatives to mall-bought merchandise. Especially this year, trends show people giving fewer--yet more personal and meaningful-gifts."
Artistry features a wide-ranging assembly of crafts in many price ranges, including ceramics, candles, glass, fine art, metal, jewelry, fiber, wood, ornaments, cards, condiments, leather, toys, and more. Exhibiting artists are from across the country, with a strong representation of participants from Connecticut and the shoreline area. All proceeds from Artistry benefit the artists and Guilford Art Center's educational and community programs.
In conjunction with Artistry, the Center will feature the latest exhibition from Studio Art Quilt Associates, Transformations '09: Reflections, including 34 quilts made by artists from around the world.
Artistry hours are Monday through Friday 10am-6pm, Thursday 10am-7:30pm, Saturday 10am-5pm, Sunday 12-4pm.
