More days to shop at Spring Arts and Fine Crafts Show
The sixth annual Spring Arts and Fine Crafts Show at the historic Merwinsville Hotel in Gaylordsville, CT, will offer six days to shop over two weekends just in time for purchasing unique Mother’s Day gifts. The show will again be two weekends, April 28-30 and May 5-7, and has expanded to three days each weekend (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.
Over 90 local artists and artisans will have work on display at the show and all is for sale. A portion of all sales benefit the Merwinsville Hotel Restoration, which has been ongoing for over 50 years. The 180-year-old building is in need of constant maintenance and renovation.
The show features artwork in glass, photography, jewelry, sculpture, fiber, woodwork, pottery and paintings in watercolors, oil and acrylic. Locally grown plants are also available for sale from Meadowbrook Garden in New Milford and The Village Farm Shop and Greenhouse in Gaylordsville.
This year will also have expanded live artist demonstrations featured April 29-30 and May 6-7 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Artist demonstrations have become a popular attraction at this show and past years have included spinners, weavers, jewelry making, wood carvers and many more.
