Shoreline Arts Trail

November 23-24th 10am-4pm Stony Creek Studios co-owners Christine and Maureen will be participating in the 11th annual Shoreline Arts Trail Open Studios Weekend.

SATAs the Shoreline Arts Trail website states, “The Shoreline ArtsTrail was initiated in 2002 by a small group of artists and artisans in the Connecticut shoreline towns of Branford, Guilford and Madison. Their intent was to create an annual Open Studios event as a showcase to allow local residents and weekend visitors to interact with the artists and to experience the creative process first-hand.”

Maureen will spend the weekend showcasing her work at Stony Creek Studios [152 Stony Creek Rd, Branford]. Christine will be right across the street in her studio [161 Thimble Islands Rd]. Visit both anytime between 10am and 4pm Saturday or Sunday!
