“This is a great opportunity for people to come out for a special evening, full of fun and surprises, while supporting all the work we do at the Guilford Art Center,” says Guilford Art Center Executive Director, Maureen Belden. “We’re planning a great party and we think people will enjoy a beautiful evening at Pine Orchard.”

The Guilford Art Center is a non-profit school, shop and gallery established to nurture and support excellence in the arts. Through classes for adults and children, gallery programs, a shop of contemporary crafts, and special events, the Center fulfills its mission to provide opportunities for the public to participate in the arts, to experience their cultural and historical diversity, and to appreciate the process and product of creative work. It receives support from the Connecticut Dept. of Economic and Community Development. Founded in 1967 (as the Guilford Handcraft Center), the Center evolved from the first Handcraft Expo, held on the Guilford Green in 1957. It currently serves over 2,000 students in classes, presents juried and invitational exhibits of art in the Center’s gallery and operates a shop of fine, handmade American crafts year-round. The Center also presents the Craft Expo, held on the Guilford Green each year in July, that features works by more than 180 of the country’s most distinguished artisans and is a much-anticipated annual event for the shoreline community
