We are the …
Join us for our Spring Arts & Crafts Market!
Just in time to shop for Mother’s Day, this is a wonderful indoor show with fine crafters and artists. We have 20 vendors for you this year.
This is the Coastal Arts Guild of CT’s first annual Spring Arts & Crafts Market, Sunday, May 3rd, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Stratford’s Baldwin Center.
The artists and crafters selected for the show bring a twist to the handmade arts and crafts, with up-cycled lighting fixtures, nostalgic mixed media papers, hand-stitched doll fashion, organically-inspired twisted wire jewelry, painted pyrography and more.
Stratford artist and guild member Susan Ernst’s mixed media piece, “Garden Songbird Silhouette” was selected for the event’s poster. She will be selling handmade art, paper and journals at the show.
And what show would be complete without artisan cupcakes?
“There is a reason handmade is on-trend right now. How many places can you go and be certain you are buying something original?” said Melissa Benson, event organizer and guild board member. “True, one-of-a-kind craftsmanship is rare and special.”
The event is at the Baldwin Center, 1000 Main Street in Stratford, with easy access right off of I-95’s exit 32, with plenty of parking.
Look for our signs!
We are (now!) the Coastal Arts Guild of CT*
Thank you to all who helped us in our (continuing) transition to our new name and home.
We are a collective of painters, sculptors, photographers, musicians, artisans, writers and more who collaborate on many community-oriented arts projects.
We work to support and promote our artists in their work and in the community.
The Coastal Arts Guild of CT coordinates several art shows throughout the year in Connecticut, including our big one, Artists & Artisans in Paradise in Stratford, Conn. and our reimagined May show, the Spring Arts & Crafts Market.
We hope you will join us for one of our monthly meetings (at Two Roads Brewing) or at a show soon. Please contact us if you have any questions.
