Are you a professional 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 peers participating in the Shoreline ArtsTrail’s 22nd annual Open Studios Weekend on November 12 and 13, 2022. Get exposure, interact with buyers of all ages, and share your time and talents with art lovers in your own studio. Approximately 40 plus 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 paintings, ceramics, glass, jewelry, sculpture, 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.

Among the benefits of becoming a member are: inclusion on the ArtsTrail brochure/map and website, statewide publicity via print and online,15,000 brochures/maps distributed throughout Connecticut, and year-round marketing, networking, and social media opportunities.

Says Eric Dillner, Chief Executive Officer of Shoreline Arts Alliance, “Shoreline Arts Alliance was thrilled to be approached to take the reins of Shoreline Arts Trail. We have been a huge advocate and look forward to working more closely with all of these extraordinary artists in sharing their world class art with the community.”

“Being a member artist is a fabulous way to share your work with art lovers and offer an intimate view of the process in your natural habitat,” Dillner adds.
