In celebration of its 62nd year, the Guilford Art Center’s annual Craft Expo will return once again to the scenic and historic Guilford Green, celebrating the arts with its extensive array of handmade crafts by American artists. Craft Expo 2019 will be held for three days: Friday, July 19 through Sunday, July 21.

Craft Expo 2019 will bring 180 nationally-recognized craft artists to Guilford, whose exquisite-quality works help rank this event as one of the top craft shows in New England and the country. As a celebration of the arts and a signature happening for the town of Guilford and the Connecticut shoreline, Craft Expo is a must-see summer event.

Drawing an estimated 7,000 arts enthusiast’s, collectors, buyers, and visitors from across the country, Craft Expo is known for its one-of-a-kind work of the highest quality: Ceramics, Wearable and Non-Wearable Fiber, Metal and Non-Metal Jewelry, Glass, Leather, Metal, Mixed Media, Painting, Photography, Printmaking, Sculpture and Wood. Items range from decorative to functional and traditional to contemporary. All work presented at Craft Expo is handmade by the artists, all of whom have been accepted in the show by a panel of professional peers, thereby ensuring only the highest quality in workmanship, design and materials. Popular amenities for the Craft Expo visitor include a food court with beer and wine, a family art tent with craft activities for youngsters attending the show, faculty and student craft demos, chalk art demos, and the chance to bid on donated craft pieces at the show’s annual silent auction. Proceeds raised through the silent auction and nominal entrance fees benefit the non-profit GUILFORD ART CENTER and its year-round calendar of gallery and school art education programs for students of all ages and skill levels.
