A Community of Artists in Branford, Guilford and Madison.
The Shoreline ArtsTrail is pleased to present a community of 47 local artists during its 12th annual Open Studios Weekend, November 23 and 24, from 10am to 4pm. This juried, two-day event showcases calligraphy, cut paper, fiber, found objects, glass, jewelry, metal, mixed media, paint, photography, pottery, print making, sculpture, textiles and more. The event is free and open to the public.
