  • Just off I-95 is a hub of art activities and events housed in a tucked away location. The Guilford Art Center is a great place for children and adults to take a variety of art classes from pottery to jewelry and all the drawing and painting classes you want. Get on their mailing list to see their schedule of classes and upcoming events or check our their Facebook page. Their signature event is the summer Guilford Handcrafts Fair on the Guilford Green that draws thousands of people and some of the best craft artists from around the country. We’re talking very high-end crafts here of the “jaw-dropping” variety. Their gallery space has changing exhibits by local artists featuring both solo and group shows. They have a wonderful gift shop filled with handmade items you're not going to find anywhere else. You can also rent the space for your own events. I went to a “celebration of life” here for an artist and it was a great space to pay tribute to a life of creativity. It's wheelchair accessible and there's always something worth seeing. After you support your local artists, it’s a straight drive down the street to the center of Guilford where you can enjoy lots of shops and places to eat. You could even do a picnic on the Guilford Green with the kids!
