Are you a talented artist looking to increase awareness and sales opportunities for your work? If so, come join a supportive, engaging, like-minded group of accomplished artists and friends participating in the Shoreline ArtsTrail’s 20th annual Open Studios Weekend on November 14 and 15, 2020. Get exposure, interact with new buyers of all ages, and share your time and talents with art lovers right in your own studio! Approximately 40 member artists who live and work in Branford, Guilford and Madison show and sell their work during this weekend, now a tradition for so many families and followers!

Artists with media such as ceramics and pottery, stained and fused glass, paintings, jewelry, sculpture, weaving, prints, photography, textiles, paper and wood are invited to apply for this event. Artists will be considered based on their mastery of methods and materials and professionalism. All considered art must be handmade by the artist. Potential members will be juried by a panel of artists for acceptance into the group.

Says member artist and juror Barbara Shulman-Kirwin, “I love being a SAT member! It allows us to interact with the public in our studios and show how we create. It is also a fabulous way to connect with other artists and be part of a supportive, friendly, helpful and fun arts community. SAT is truly a win-win!”

Among the benefits of becoming a member are: inclusion on the ArtsTrail map and website; statewide publicity via print and online; 13,000 brochures/maps distributed throughout Connecticut; and year-round marketing, networking, and social media opportunities. Member dues are $250 annually.
