Guilford Art League Expo Exhibit & Sale on the Guilford Green, July 15–17

For the first time since 2019 we will be holding our exhibit and sale on the Guilford Green in conjunction with the Guilford Art Center’s Craft Expo. This is a three-day event where our members can show and sell their work. The dates are Friday–Sunday, July 15–17, 2022.

After the two-year hiatus because of COVID, we are opening the show to all members instead of just full members. We invite anyone who is interested in selling their work to set up a table or tent and to meet some of the thousands of visitors who come to see our show as well as the Craft Expo. Ten-by-ten-foot spaces are available.

If you would like to participate, please send the application form below directly to our Expo coordinator Jodi Marra by June 1 (address below).
