Let’s Celebrate the Arts Columbus Day Weekend

October 10, 2020 - October 11, 2020

The Arts Center Killingworth returns to the Madison Connecticut Town Green to present its Annual Autumn Outdoor Arts Festival on Saturday, October 10, 10-5pm, and Sunday, October 11, 12-5pm (rain date Monday, October 12, 10-5pm) with new and original artwork and fine crafts by established and emerging artists from throughout Connecticut and the tri-state region.  The Festival is located at Boston Post Road (Route 1) and Copse Road, and includes representational and abstract painting, as well as photography, mixed media, and sculpture. Artisans exhibiting on the Green feature those working in pottery, wood, fabric and wool, and jewelry designs in sterling silver, precious/semi-precious metals, stones and other fine materials.

The Arts Festival includes a corresponding seven-week Group Show at Spectrum Art Gallery and Artisans Store at 61 Main Street, Centerbrook through November 8.  A juried selection of work by artists participating on the Green are presented and include painting, photography and mixed media collage. There are also many new, one-of-a-kind fine crafts to discover at Spectrum’s Artisans Store.

The Festival includes social distancing measures, with the visiting public asked to wear masks at the event and to use hand sanitizer before entering each individual booth or visiting artists under one of the larger tents.  For a sneak peak of the artists, visit spectrumartgallery.org for online galleries which feature images and background information on each participating artist.
