After a two-year hiatus due to COVID, the Guilford Art Center is thrilled to announce that Craft Expo 2022, its annual contemporary craft and art show, will return to the Guilford Green!

Held July 15-17, 2022, Craft Expo is one of the most successful and long-running craft shows in America. Over 170 modern makers from across the country will display and sell their fine craft in a variety of media, including Clay, Food, Glass, Leather, Metal and Non-Metal Jewelry, Wearable and Fiber for the Home, Metal, Mixed Media, Paper, Painting, Photography, Printmaking, Soap and Wood.

Popular amenities for the Craft Expo visitor include a food court, a family art tent with kid craft activities, faculty and student craft 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.
